New Screening Test Services for R.E.D. & Rechargeable Batteries
All electronic toys, including the popular Wi-Fi / Bluetooth connected toys, need to comply with various regulations before it can be placed on the market. They must be constructed so that it supports and makes effective use of the radio spectrum, to avoid harmful interference. Another key component is the battery, where its performance, composition and disposal are heavily regulated to avoid injuries and/or causing any environmental damages.
In the past 2 years, over 13,000 R&TTE / RED equipment had been inspected throughout Europe. Of the market surveillances conducted, over 10,000 had been found non-compliant (see adjacent table). Moreover, continuous cases regarding battery unconformities had been reported in RAPEX (for example, RAPEX alert #s: A11/0052/13, 0506/08)
