SPECIAL BULLETIN: CPSC Grants One Year Stay of Enforcement of Certain CPSIA Testing & Certification Requirements: Relief is Limited and Qualified

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP

In response to the chaos and confusion that the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) has created in the marketplace, the Consumer Product Safety Commission voted unanimously (2-0) to issue a one year stay of enforcement for certain testing and certification requirements for manufacturers and importers of regulated products, including products intended for children 12 years and younger. The Proposed Draft can be found here. Specifically, the stay provides limited relief from the testing and certification requirements for new total lead content limits, phthalates limits and mandatory toy standards (among other things), which go into effect on February 10, 2009. According to the Commission's January 30, 2009 announcement,"manufacturers and importers -- large and small -- of children's products will not need to test or certify to these new requirements, but will need to meet the lead and phthalates limits, mandatory toy standards and other requirements."
