CPSIA and Your Product: What Is It?

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) is a law passed in 2008 that mandates that certain quality standards be met for the manufacturing of consumer goods targeted toward children under the age of 12.  According to the CPSIA, the following factors are considered for products:

  • A statement by the manufacturer about the intended use of the product, including a label on the product if such statement is reasonable.
  • Whether the product is represented in its packaging, display, promotion or advertising as appropriate for use by children 12 years of age or younger.
  • Whether the product is commonly recognized by consumers as being intended for use by a child 12 years of age or younger.
  • The Age Determination Guidelines issued by the Commission staff in September 2002, and any successor to such guidelines.

There are, of course exemptions and other factors that may grant a product immunity.  For more information on the CPSIA, please visit the CPSC’s FAQ section on the CPSIA by clicking here.

Here at Planet Label, we take consumer product standards very seriously, and in response to the law being passed and enforced, we’ve created a line of CPSIA approved products to ensure child safety for consumer products.  We currently manufacture over 75 different CPSIA approved labels to ensure the best quality at an affordable price.  Please see our CPSIA Labels section for more information.
