On 18 February 2014, Member States agreed on restrictions to the presence of several substances in toys. Accordingly, specific limit values for TCEP, TCPP, TDCP and Bisphenol A in toys intended for use by children under 36 months, or in other toys intended to be placed in the mouth, should be adopted. A specific exemption to the use of nickel should also be adopted. These changes are still subject to approval by the EP and the Council of the EU.
