Designated toys that are intended for infants in Japan are required to comply with the mandatory safety of Section Ⅲ: Implements, Containers, and Packaging and / or section Ⅳ: Toys in accordance with the Specifications and Standards for Foods, Food Additives, etc. under Food Sanitation Law.


Japan Toy Safety Standard (ST Standard) established by the Japan Toy Association provides toy manufacturers, retailers and consumers with additional safeguard on toys through the ST Mark scheme for toys intended for children up to the age of 14.

Imported and manufactured toys for Japan should be tested by a designated testing laboratory to demonstrate conformity to the Food Sanitation Law or the ST standard. STC is a designated overseas testing laboratory in Hong Kong for both.
