BS EN 71-4:2013 pdf free.Safety of toys Part 4: Experimental sets for chemistry and related activities.
BS EN 71-4 applies to eprneitai sets for chenistry and related activities including ciystal growvrig sets. carbon doxide gerafing expenmental sets and supp1n&tary sets It also covers sets for chemical expenments wittin the fiekis of mineralogy, biology, physics, microscoi and environmental science whenever they contain one or more chemical substances and/or rrwxtures which are classified as hazardous according to Regulation (EC) No 127212008 (21
This standard also specifies requirements for marking, a contents list, instructions for use, eye potection and for the equipment intended for carrying oi the experiments
This standard does not apply to toys that are covered by EN 71-13 (e.g cosmetic kits) Requirements for certain other chemical toys are given in EN 71-5.
NOTE The terms substance and preparation, as used in Directives 67/548/EEC [1] and 19991451EC L3J, are also
used in the REACH Regulation”, Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (4J, According to the Globally Harmonised System
(GHS) of classification and labelling of chemicals, vtuch in the European Union has been enacted by Regulation (EC) No
127212008 (dassicabon, labelling and packaging of substances and fixtures) [21. the timetable for the introduction of
OHS has to be fofloed
The viords preparation and mixture” should be considered synonymous, both are a rrixture or solution of substances that do not react vth each other The old term preparation Mll be replaced by the new term “n*xture in due course In this standard, only the term nixture is used.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply
3.1 chemical toy
toy intended for the direct handling of chemical substances arid mixtures and which is used in a manner appropriate to a given age-group and under the supervision of an adult
3.2 experimental set
chomizal toy where the experimental and expiorative character in playing with single chemical substances and mixtures along strict instructions dominates over the creative ideas of the user
3.3 chemistry set
expertmontai set consisting of one or more chemical substances and/or mixtures with or without equipment intended for carrying out chemical expenments
Note 1 to entry The definition also covers experimental sets for cherrcal experiments vthin the fields of nineralogy, biology, physics. microscopy and environmental sciences whenever they contain one or more chemical substances and/or mixtures which are dassifled as hazardous according to Regulation (EC) No 127212008, excluding ciystai growing sets and carbon daxrie generating experimental sets
3.4 crystal growing set
experrmentai set consisting of one or more chemical substances for growing crystals without any reaction between the supplied substances
Note 1 to entry A crystal growing set is used to grow crystals of different substances in aqueous solubons The crystals may be groi on different materials (e.g. stones or gypsum) and can be coloured in different ways (e.g with food colours) The expanding nature of the greivng crystal is not subec* to requirements within EN 71-1 for expanding materials as the expansion is not related to the absorption of water in the crystal and the expansion usually takes place over a long penod of time (several days or eel).
3.6 carbon dioxide generating experimental set
expwmerit& set consisting mainly of a carbon dioxide-donor substance or mixture and a carbon dioxide- liberating substance or mixture which after com1nation generate carbon dioxide in the presence of water in an open system without any gas-tight restriction or confinement.BS EN 71-4 pdf download.
