Apart from our high quality standards regarding materials and the production process, we are also considerate of the protection of all of the people working for us. In this respect, we have determined ecological and social codes of behaviour that ensure safety at work and the protection from health risks. This is also why NICI enforces the adherence to and the certification of the ICTI Codex with its manufacturers, because the International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) promotes ethically proper and safe methods in toy production. Its members bind themselves to fair, lawful conditions of production that are laid down in the code of conduct of the organisation.
