How to prepare General Conformity Certification?

The contents of General Conformity of Certificate of a product must include the following information.
  • Identification of the product covered by the certificate,
  • Citation to each CPSC product safety regulation to which product is being certified,
  • Identification of the importer or domestic manufacturer certifying compliance including manufacturer's name, full address and telephone number,
  • Contact information for the individual responsible for maintaining test records including the name, email address, full address and telephone number,
  • Date and place where the product was manufactured,
  • Date and place where the product was tested for compliance with the regulation(s) cited above,
  • Identification of any third-party laboratory on whose testing the certificate depends including name, full address and telephone number.


  • One Certificate can be used for each product but must list separately each safety rule applicable to the product.
  • One Certificate can include compliance with both general conformity and third-party testing requirements.
  • Third-party testing requirements are effective 90 days after the CPSC establishes and publishes the accreditation requirements for third-party laboratories.
  • CPSC has stated that laboratories are NOT allowed to issue certificates for final products.
  • Cerificates must be specified in English.
