CPSC Issues Final Rule Clarifying Certification Issues


Section 102 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) imposes new requirements for (a) General Conformity Certification and (b) Third-Party Testing and Certification of Children?s Products. The new general certification requirement for all consumer products subject to any rule, standard, ban, or regulation under any Act enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) became effective on November 12, 2008. The third-party testing and certification requirements for children?s products are phased in on a rolling schedule. For example, third-party certificates attesting to compliance with new lead paint limits for children?s products are required as of December 22, 2008.
