When talking of laboratory testing products that your company must do to avoid problems at the time to marketing, one of the most relevant is the CPSIA test. This law will allow your products to be marketed in the United States. In fact, it is a law that the U.S. government has in place to prevent the entry of products made with hazardous material. It focuses particularly on protecting children from products that could jeopardize their safety.
The CPSIA test is useful to sell your products in the United States but other companies and products use this test as a reference. For this reason, it is very important to have these tests conducted by a specialized team. In Annex Asia we offer the appropriate and qualified laboratories certified by CNAS who will offer you a report where you can inform authorities that product complies with the law or Improvement for Safety of Consumer Products or CPSIA .
The products designed for children aged between 0 and 12 years old, are those who are subject to more thorough analysis to allow entry into the United States. If you plan to manufacture products for these ages a test like this is critical.
The regulations found in this law are:
- Restrictions on the existence of lead in products for children (300 ppm )
- The total ban on Phthalates in Children's Products
- Use of external laboratories for this report
- Use of laboratories that are accredited to treat lead
Failure to comply with these rules will prohibit you to enter the United States and prevent you from doing business in this country, you can also attain a penalty which may go up to USD 15 million.
This financial penalty could be accompanied by imprisonment in the most extreme cases.
