What is the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act?

Posted April 7, 2016

Passed in 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), imposes new testing and documentation requirements, and sets new acceptable levels of several substances, namely lead and the phthalates DEHP, DBP, and BBP. The law imposes new requirements on manufacturers of apparel, shoes, personal care products, accessories and jewelry, home furnishings, bedding, toys, electronics and video games, books, school supplies, educational materials and science kits. 

consumer-product-safety-improvement-actWhile our suppliers source products from around the world, we trust them to work with manufacturers who adhere to the requirements set forth in the CPSIA. Thus, the majority of our items are CPSIA-certified and can be used for any type of promotion without issue. We work with suppliers from all over the country, but we try our best to work most with suppliers active in the Quality Certification Alliance, an industry group devoted to enforcement of CPSIA, California Prop 65, and other product safety laws. 

What does this mean for you?

If you are concerned whether the item you are considering is CPSIA-certified, please call us at 800-554-0127. A promotions expert can tell you whether the item adheres to CPSIA’s requirements and even procure a certificate of compliance should you require one.
