Testing Requirements Under Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act Stayed For Additional Year to February 10, 2011


On Friday, December 18, 2009, the Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC") issued a notice announcing a revision to the terms of the stay of enforcement of the stringent certification and testing requirements under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act ("CPSIA"). With regard to testing and certifying children’s products for compliance with phthalate levels, the stay is continued while the CPSC works toward finalizing the accreditation requirements for testing labs. Once standards for a particular category of product are published in the Federal Register, the responsible parties will have 90 days to achieve compliance with the testing and certification requirements. For children’s products subject to lead testing requirements, the stay has been extended for an additional year, to February 10, 2011.[1]
