EU regulation reduces permissible limits for barium in toys

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has issued a regulation immediately reducing the permissible limits of barium in children’s toys.

Published in July 2013 in the Official Journal of the European Union, Regulation No. 681/2013 implements lower migration limits for barium to 18,750 mg/kg for scraped off material, 1,500 mg/kg for dry material and 375 mg/kg for liquid material. The new lower limits are based on recent science on the tolerable daily intake of barium, adjusted for the gastrointestinal absorption rate of infants and children.

The new lower migration limits for barium are now in effect.
