CPSIA Compliant

PRODUCTS WITH THIS SEAL COMPLY WITH CPSIA PRODUCT SAFETY REQUIREMENTS 

The CPSIA stands for the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act which is a law that was enacted in August of 2008.

The stated purpose of this bill is to “establish consumer product safety standards and other safety requirements for children’s products and to reauthorize and modernize the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

The CPSIA requires that all products intended for children under 12 are tested and certified as meeting the lead limits as set forth in the law. Phthalate testing is also required for toys intended for children under 12 or “child care articles” for children under three.

The following materials are considered exempt from third party lead testing by the CPSC:

  • Precious metals, including gold, silver, and titanium.
  • Precious and semiprecious gemstones that are not associated with lead in nature, e.g. rubies, emeralds, tourmaline, jade, quartz.
  • Natural and cultured pearls.
  • Wood.
  • Amber.
  • Minerals and fossils, except for those minerals (like galena) that are associated with lead in nature.
  • Plant-based materials such as bark, essential oils, jojoba, and tung oil.
  • Animal-based materials such as horn, coral, seashells, bone, shellac, and animal glue.
  • Food-grade items such as beeswax, mineral oil, food coloring, herbs, milk, and honey.
  • All textiles: dyed and undyed, natural and synthetic.
  • Paper, cardboard, and similar wood-pulp products.
  • CMYK process printing ink.
  • Books, if they are made entirely of exempt materials. All books printed after 1985 are considered to be made of exempt materials.

 

Although many of the products on this site are exempt, the ones with this seal are still still required to attach “Tracking Labels” to all garments which will provide the manufacturers name and address (or their RN#) as well as the date manufactured. For these suppliers, you will find a label on each garment with the RN# and the month/year the item was made.
