Here is Steve Kahane with an update on the CPSC’s latest ruling:
Consumer Product Safety Commission Extends Stay of Enforcement on Lead Testing through 2011; Stay of Enforcement on Phthalate Testing to Remain in Effect
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is extending the stay of enforcement of testing and certification requirements pertaining to total lead content in children’s products and certain related products to December 31, 2011. The extension does not apply to metal components in metal jewelry. The stay was set to expire on February 10, 2011.
The CPSC also announced that the stay of enforcement on testing and certification of children’s toys and child care articles for banned phthalates remains in effect. There are currently no labs accredited by the CPSC to perform this testing. The stay will continue until the CPSC issues its accreditation requirements for third party conformity assessment bodies (labs). Concerns have been raised about the current test methodology’s ability to accurately and consistently distinguish between banned and ‘compliant’ phthalates.
Please refer to Steve’s blog posting last week for additional background information on the extension.
