Like so call tabatian silver is often not silver at all.
You have to be very careful when buying anything metal from a non EU country as we have laws about cadmium, lead and nickel content.
I once bought a pair of pretty little embroidery scissor’s from a non EU country I used them once then notice a dreadful smell was coming from them. They were supposed to be stainless steel. I know what stainless steel smells like. The scissors didn’t smell of stainless steel but something very nastie. I had them tested and all sorts of nasty compounds where in them and they were disposed of.
We have to be very careful as just what we sell and just putting a warning on something like saying not suitable for under 3years , or use under supervision does not cover us if a little one gets hold of it and chokes. etc.
We would require liability insurance of course and best of all don’t sell something that could be a potential hazard.
If we do use plastic bags to wrap things there should be the warning of suffocation notice on the plastic bag.
Best way to protect ourselves is not use anything or make anything that could be a safety issue.
Also if you use an kind of stuffing best to state what it is made of in case a potential buyer might need the information due to allergies. If you use animal based yarns, cotton or acrylic or mix fibre yarns/materials these need to be listed.
Any thing that goes onto the skin ie soaps, face scrubs etc etc should also have their ingredients listed for the same reason as with any food item.
Stating that by wearing something can improve or cure something is considered false advertising unless it’s backed by the British Medical council.
So if you say “wear this blue stone and it will protect you from colds” that’s classified as false advertising. But what you can say is, "Some people believe wearing this blue stone might protect them from colds. "
If you are making lamps for example and including all the wiring, That needs to be done by a Electrical tester, that electrical tester could be the seller but that seller has to hold the correct certificate. There should be a tag attached saying it’s been tested and conforms to the code. etc etc. I saw some lovely handmade lamp stands with the electrical fitting and was very tempted to buy one but no where in the listing did it say anything about Electrical testing. So I didn’t buy.
So yes we should know the laws pretending to what we make and sell as I’m sure non of us wants to cause harm to our customers or potentially end up in court.
