New CPSIA testing rules implemented Feb. 8
The Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) final rule on Testing and Labeling Pertaining to Product Certification went into effect on Feb. 8, 2013, and applies to all products manufactured after that date. The final rule requires that all children's products be periodically tested by certified third-party labs for compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and other applicable product safety rules. The new rule allows companies to create a "Reasonable Testing Program" (RTP) that would enable companies to only have to test in third-party labs once every two years. In coordination with AAFA, TGA has and will continue to educate members about complying with the testing and certification rule, including last month's Product Safety and Compliance Seminar, as well as the recent Oct. 17 AAFA webinar on CPSIA Testing and Certification and Component Part Testing Rules.
