Notices are sent to Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal by the CCPA for allegedly selling toys without the BIS quality certification.

Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) on Thursday issued notices to Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal for alleged sale of toys without BIS quality mark, reported PTI.

On Wednesday, the government had announced seizing 18,600 toys in the last one month from major retail stores, including those of Hamleys and Archies at airports and malls across the country, for lack of BIS quality mark.

Since January 1, 2021, the government made it mandatory for toys to conform with safety norms specified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), a national standards setting body.

“We received complaints from domestic manufacturers of sale of toys that do not conform with the BIS standard. We conducted 44 raids in last one month and seized 18,600 toys from major retail stores,” PTI quoted BIS Director General Pramod Kumar Tiwari as saying.

The raids were conducted at retail stores, including those of Hamleys, Archies, WH Smith, Kids Zone and Cococart located at major airports and malls across the country, he said.

A legal action will be taken against retailers as per the provisions under the BIS Act, Tiwari said.

Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) chief Nidhi Khare said, “We have also issued notices to Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal for selling toys without BIS quality mark.”
