All children’s products need to meet CPSC regulations. Specifically they need to meet CPSIA requirements regarding lead and possibly phthalate testing. (https://www.cpsc.gov/en/Business–Manufacturing/Business-Education/Business-Guidance/Phthalates-Information/)
- Testing must be done by a CPSIA certified laboratory. This can be done either by the importer or the factory. Most importers ask the factory to contract out work with a certified laboratory in China. (http://www.cpsc.gov/cgi-bin/labsearch/)
- The products will need to have tracking labels. (http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Business–Manufacturing/Business-Education/tracking-label/)
- The importer needs to produce a GCC (General Certificate of Conformity). This is a document that the importer produces certifying that the product meets the requirements of the CPSC. (http://www.cpsc.gov/PageFiles/110302/elecertfaq.pdf).
