The European Commission (EC) has issued a directive (2014/81/EU) to amend Directive 2009/48/EC by establishing limits on the bisphenol A (BPA) used in toys intended for use by children 3 years old and younger “or in other toys intended to be placed in the mouth.” The migration limit—that amount of BPA which can be transferred from a toy—has been set at 0.1 mg/l and will be applied in member states by December 21, 2015. According to the EC, the European Food Safety Authority is currently evaluating the effects of BPA, and the limit will be reviewed if “relevant new scientific information becomes available in the future.”
