Algeria Introduces New Regulations for Childcare Articles

Algeria’s new technical regulations for childcare articles came into effect on May 27, 2017. Originally published in November 2016 as Interministerial Order of July 11, 2016, Arrêté Interministériel du 6 Chaoual 1437, the new law contains several important provisions, including:

• Meeting physical, mechanical, flammability and chemical properties. Chemical requirements can be summarized as:
o Soluble elements – must conform to regulations
o Bisphenol A (BPA) – prohibited
o BBP, DBP and DEHP – less than or equal to 0.1% each for plasticized materials
o DIDP, DINP and DNOP – less than or equal to 0.1% each for plasticized materials that can be placed in the mouth
• Requiring the words ‘Conforme aux exigences de sécurité’, ‘complies with safety requirements’, to be affixed to the product or its packaging. This is in addition to existing labeling laws
• Accompanying instruction manuals stating assembly instructions and where applicable, the method, conditions and precautions for use. This must be in Arabic, and one or more ancillary language
• Certificate of Conformity (CoC) attesting that the product complies with the requirements in the technical regulations

The new law is particularly clear that childcare articles, such as baby bottles, pacifiers, teats and teethers, must not contain BPA.

The new law defines a ‘childcare article’ as any product intended to ensure or facilitate sitting, general body care, sleeping, transportation, movement, physical protection and the feeding or sucking of children under the age of four. It does not apply to bedding, hygiene accessories and restraining devices for child occupants of power-driven vehicles.
