Sports equipment - balls and yoga mats/exercise mats

When procuring sports equipment, the criteria for toys and sports equipment should be used together, since you cannot know in advance if the supplier will offer products that are CE marked as toys or not. The supplier then applies either the requirement for a toy or the corresponding requirement for sports equipment, depending on which product is offered. Examples of a product type that is available both as CE-marked toy and as non-CE-marked sports equipment, depending on whether they are intended for play or sports, are balls. It is the supplier/manufacturer who chooses whether a product is a toy and thus shall be CE marked. Sports equipment that is not CE marked as a toy has not been tested in accordance with the requirements of the Toys Directive.
