Quality and product safety are essential in the EU and in particularly the toy industry. Vendors and manufacturers should comprise a well functioning quality management team to ensure their products are safe for entry into the European Union.

DVSI  co-operates with SGS – CSTC & JagoProjektbetreuung with the support of The Sino-German Working Group on Product Safety, aiming to implement the high European quality standards into the Chinese Toy industry thus lowering technical barriers for a better trading between German Buyers and all global manufacturers, especially in the Far East where the majority of the manufacturing base is located.

The Training seminar covers a variety of topics not only the EU standards but also the Legal basics and law enforcements in the EU, as well as Quality Management.
