Hi - does anyone know about dice manufactured in China (they have passed EN71) apparently - do they require further testing in Australia to pass AS?

Or are they not even required as they are a finished product?

I've contacted SAI Global on this but no one has returned an answer so far....anyone here have an idea on this?

Wow, interesting how many factors go into producing a game.

The one thing that occurs to me is the age group for the game. Dice could pose a choking hazard to small children.

All parts require testing, even purchased parts.

Companies that test for compliance should know the standards for specific countries. If you are having your game components tested, just tell them you want to sell the game in Australia and they'll tell you if the components meet those standards.

Standard routine in publishing board games is to label "not for kids, ages 13+", and skip testing. I'd check into that route.

Bingo. Otherwise don't buy from a factory, buy from an importer instead. They already have products in stock that meet all relevant regulations. A lot of people insist on factory-direct when it's really not the correct choice in a lot of situations.
