What information do I need to include on craft kits?

I am in the process of designing my own range of craft kits for children and I am trying to find information about Health and Safety labels and CE marks which are on kits I see on kits in shops.

At craft fairs and some small shops kits dont always have this information on, I assume they should have though.

Can you help please or point me in the right direction?

Hi Julie

I think there are different requirements for the different craft sectors.  I would try contacting British Standards in the first instance www.bsigroup.com/ or the Health & Safety Executive www.hse.gov.uk.

I hope that helps.

Kind Regards
