TEA Analysis of N-Nitrosamines and Nitrosatable Substance in Toys

As per BS EN 71-12:2013

Toy Testing of Nitrosamines

Nitrosamines are a group of carcinogenic and mutagenic compounds. Daily and prolonged contact with manufactured items including rubber products, such as toys, will lead to continual exposure of these compounds. Potentially any item containing nitrites/nitrates could contain nitrosamines and any process that uses secondary amines, where the manufacturing process results in an introduction of atmospheric nitrous oxide, could produce nitrosamines.
