In the last few months there have been a lot of changes to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). The constant amendments to the law have left most consumers unclear about the improvements and the respective timelines that they should expect to see from companies like Bambino Land. For your benefit, we have created these FAQs, which we will continually update, to help you stay informed.
What is the Consumer Product Safety Act?
In response to the recent increase in reports of lead and toxins, as well as potential choking hazards of children’s toys, Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in August of 2008. The law requires extensive third-party testing requirements on all items produced for children less than 12 years of age for lead, phthalates and choking hazards. Find out more about the CPSIA on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
Are Bambino Land products compliant with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations?
Yes. We have tested our products, and they meet all requirements put forth by the CPSIA. We have taken the CPSIA’s new legal requirements very seriously and understand the impact this law has on both consumers and retailers. Bambino Land muslin products have been tested for lead and phthalates. Bambino Land holds a current Certification of Compliance.
When will companies need to comply with this new law?
There are many different requirements for this law and therefore many different timelines. View the CPSIA timetable here.
