  Requirements

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Testing and Certification Rule
Effective Feb. 8, 2013

Business Wire

OAK BROOK, Ill. -- February 6, 2013

Children’s products manufactured after Feb. 8, 2013, will need to meet new
testing and recordkeeping requirements to be sold in the U.S. when the
Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Testing and Certification Rule
goes into effect. These new requirements include:

  *Conducting periodic testing to provide a high degree of assurance that
    standards applicable to product continue to be met
  *Retesting and recertification if a product undergoes a material change
  *Developing training and policies to prevent undue influence over
    third-party labs

To help U.S. manufacturers and importers ensure their children’s products are
in compliance with the Testing and Certification Rule and other Consumer
Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) requirements, Intertek offers
comprehensive testing solutions for toys, juvenile products, textiles and
footwear through our network of CPSC-accredited third-party testing labs, as
well as advisory solutions like our iComply™ compliance tool.

To learn more about how Intertek can help ensure your children’s products are
in compliance with CPSC regulations, please visit
