Europe - EN 71-13: 2021+A1: 2022

​On May 5, 2022, EN 71-13:2021+A1:2022 was published as the new version of the standard "Safety of toys - Part 13: Olfactory board games, cosmetic kits and gustative games" by the European Committee for Standardization CEN. Its main purpose is to implement Directives 2020/2089/EU and 2020/2088/EU on fragrances in toys and it replaces the current version EN 71-13:2021.

In the member states, EN 71-13:2021+A1:2022 shall be given the status of a national standard at the latest by November 2022 and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn by this date. Germany published the national version DIN EN 71-13:2022-07 in July, and DIN EN 71-13:2021-06 was withdrawn at the same time.

Currently still EN 71-13:2021 functions as basis for the presumption of conformity with Directive 2009/48/EC on the safety of toys. Only as of May 15, it replaced the old version EN 71-13:2014 as settled by Commission implementing decision (EU) 2021/1992 of November 15, 2021 on harmonized standards for toys drafted in support of Directive 2009/48/EC.

It is expected that the latest version of EN 71-13 will be cited with the next publication of standards in support of Directive 2009/48/EC in the EU Official Journal. After the end of the transitional period for harmonization (probably 3-6 months), this version will be legally binding.​
