The Technical Management Board of the International Standardization Organisation (ISO) has approved the formation of a committee to formulate a standard for sex toys. This was preceded by a vote of the members last August, in which 17 national organizations spoke in favour of such a standard.
The standard will relate to design and safety requirements for sex toys that come into direct contact with the genitals, anus or both. It will specify safety and user information requirements relating to the materials and designs for products intended for sexual use. The first meeting of the new committee is planned for 14-15 November in Stockholm
