Higher Living Standards for Pets – Pet Toys & Supplies

As pets are becoming increasingly humanized, premium pet food, exquisite treats, and stylish care and training products are highly sought after in many of the developed markets where pets are considered part of the family.

In light of the trend of pet humanization, pet owners are more conscious about the safety, healthiness, and functionality of the items they buy for their loved pets. As pet owners are spending more time caring for the well-being of their pets, the safeness and user-friendliness of pet care products have also become more relevant.

While pet food products are strictly regulated by the European Pet Food Industry Federation (FEDIAF) in the EU, other pet products such as accessories are less regulated.

Currently, there are no mandatory EU regulations that are specific for pet products, excluding food, drugs, and related products.

This doesn’t imply that pet products are completely unregulated as they might be covered by general consumer product regulatory frameworks like the General Product Safety Directive (GPSD), REACH, or other regulations.

Some test items for compliance include:

SGS experts aim to get your products to market as quickly as possible while ensuring that they meet the safety, quality, and performance requirements of applicable legislation or required by your own quality assurance plan.
