From July 1st, 2020, the voluntary German GS-Mark standard requires new evaluation and specifications for the restriction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), such as Benzo[a]pyrene and more chemicals to be tested.
Among other modifications of the requirements, additional consumer products for children will fall into the scope. As a result, if you manufacture, export to Germany or distribute devices for kids, such as toys, you may want to consider the GS-Mark specifications.
More details are available on standard AfPS GS 2019:01 PAK
