Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) is one of the most comprehensive transformations of consumer-product safety regulations since the 1970s. CPSIA expands the role of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in ensuring the safety of consumer products, especially those designed for children.

Manufacturers, importers and retailers of most consumer products will have to come comply with many provisions of CPSIA, including:

  • Rigorous lead restrictions for children's products
  • A ban on phthalates (chemicals used to soften plastic) in children's toys
  • Mandatory infant products registration
  • Conversion of a voluntary toy safety standard to a mandatory standard
  • Mandatory third-party testing and certification of toys and children's products beginning with the new lower limits on lead in paint content.
