President Obama Signs CPSIA Revision Bill into Law


WASHINGTON, D.C.—On August 12, President Barack Obama signed into law H.R. 2715 to revise the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). The new revisions will apply the lead limit of 100 ppm in children’s products, to goods manufactured after August 14, sparing those already produced and held as inventory. Several other changes were made to the bill including third-party testing regulations and testing relief for “small-batch manufacturers,” who produce no more than 10,000 units per year and a gross revenue less than $1,000,000 in the previous year.

This bill was first introduced by Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.) and was approved by both the House and Senate on August 1. (Sources: PPAI, house.gov)
