The CPSIA is a consumer product safety law enacted in 2008. This law establishes consumer product safety standards and other safety requirements for children’s products and toys. It mandates, among other things, the independent third-party oversight of all children’s products and toys.
Consumer product safety testing is a vital part of ensuring that the products we buy are safe for us and our families to use. This includes everything from food, clothes, toys, cosmetics, electronics, and more. There are a number of different tests that may be conducted on these products before they are allowed to enter the marketplace. These can include physical and chemical analyses as well as toxicity assessments. Some items might also need approval from an outside agency like the FDA before they can go to market or be sold in stores.
In order to protect consumers from unsafe products, it’s important for manufacturers and retailers alike to follow all applicable regulations which will help ensure consumer safety at every stage of production so you always know what you’re buying is safe for your family.
