New US Regulation CPSIA - Part 1

On August 2008, President George W. Bush of the United States signed a landmark legislation 'Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 (HR 4040)', to reauthorise the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for FY 2010-2014 and expanded the Commision's role in ensuring the safety of consumer products, especially those intended for children. The aim of this act is to protect th American public from unresonable risks of injiry and dealth posed by consumer products and is in response to a wave of recalls of "toxic toys" and other products.

The act directs CPSC to provide guidance on implementation specific provisions as per schedule mndated in the CPSIA legislation. To further address he requirements for the GCC (General Certificate of Conformity), the CPSC has published a final rule for such requirements.

For new requirements under CPSIA, please kindly see the further parts of this topic.
