The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) is seeking feedback on ISO’s proposal for the development of a new standards committee on Sex toys — Design and safety requirements for products in direct contact with genitalia, the anus, or both. All responses submitted to SCC will serve to generate a Canadian position on the proposal.
Purpose and justification for new field of activity
This proposed global standard is intended for manufacturers, retailers, medical providers and consumers who hope to reduce painful user accidents and incidents where sex toys are misused. This standard could reduce health care costs and provide useful guidance for businesses. The proposed standard will contain clear requirements for risk assessment, safety, quality and user information, as well as recommendations for design.
Scope of proposed technical activity
The proposed standard specifies safety and user information requirements for the materials and design of products intended for sexual use. It covers only products that are intended to come in direct contact with genitals and/or the anus.
SCC values your feedback on this proposal. Stakeholders are invited to consider whether or not they agree with the proposal by completing a brief stakeholder feedback form.
Deadline for survey submission
The SCC values your feedback on this proposal. Please fill out the Stakeholder feedback form no later than August 3, 2019.
