Clarified Rules on Third-Party Testing and Certification of Children’s Products Delayed Again
In October 2015 the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a rule clarifying when component part testing can be used in third-party testing of children’s products and which textile products have been determined not to exceed the allowable lead content limits. The CPSC is now reopening until Jan. 13 the period for submitting significant adverse comment on this rule. The CPSC is also extending from Jan. 13 to Feb. 12 the date on which this rule will become effective unless significant adverse comment is received. If such comment is received by that date the CPSC will withdraw the rule before its effective date and address the comments received in a later final rule that will be based on a proposed rule the CPSC issued concurrently with the direct final rule.
