Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act – CPSIA

by on May.13, 2010, under Asia Business, General News

The CPSIA is a federal law applied to all States in the US, and is intended to make toys and other common consumer products safer. In addition, it makes product recalls more effective and gives more authority to federal and state enforcement agencies.

The CPSIA:

  • restricts the use of lead and phthalates in children’s products
  • implements the mandatory ASTM F693 toy standards
  • specifies certain products to be tested by third-party laboratories
  • is applied to any product subject to any consumer product safety rule under the act, or any similar rule, ban, standard or regulation, under any act enforced by the CPSC Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Quality Products International has teamed up with leading laboratories in Hong Kong and mainland China to provide advise, assistance and to facilitate product CPSIA compliance testing. Part of the service offering from QPI is that of sample picking during production. This means that true “un-doctored” samples will be tested, minimizing your liability and risk.
