India Lifts Import Ban on Chinese Toys

The Times of India reports that India has lifted the ban on China-produced toys:

According to a public notice by the Commerce Ministry, the import of toys from China will be allowed if they conform to the standards prescribed in “ASTM F963” or “ISO 8124 (parts I – III) or IS 9873 (parts I – III)”.

These regulations primarily deal with safety and health hazards.

The government further said that the imports from China will have to be accompanied by a requisite certificate from laboratories accredited to the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation.
