Webinar - India QCO, A Closer Look at the Toy Manual
About the Webinar
The newly introduced Quality Control Order (QCO) in India requires all toy manufacturers to obtain a Toy Certification from the Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS).
This certification will allow them to continue selling toys in the Indian domestic market. To aid companies in meeting the QCO requirements, BIS has issued a Toy Product Manual (PM) containing details to guide manufacturers through the certification process.
Considering these developments, the Asia Toy & Play Association (ATPA) and the Hong Kong Toy Council (HKTC) are organizing a webinar to present and analyze the Product Manual in-depth. Furthermore, a Q&A segment will allow members and non-members to clarify their doubts with the speakers.
ATPA and HKTC are actively engaged with the Government of India to submit constructive feedback on the QCO and support the growth of the local domestic toy market.
