Re: CPSIA Laws.

From the CPSC Website, issued Jan. 8th.

Quote:
In February 2009, new requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) take effect. Manufacturers, importers and retailers are expected to comply with the new Congressionally-mandated laws. Beginning February 10, 2009, children's products cannot be sold if they contain more than 600 parts per million (ppm) total lead. Certain children's products manufactured on or after February 10, 2009 cannot be sold if they contain more than 0.1% of certain specific phthalates or if they fail to meet new mandatory standards for toys. The new law requires that domestic manufacturers and importers certify that children's products made after February 10 meet all the new safety standards and the lead ban. Sellers of used children's products, such as thrift stores and consignment stores, are not required to certify that those products meet the new lead limits, phthalates standard or new toy standards.

Re: CPSIA Laws.

Just realized that was already posted, but I think we're going to be just fine.

Re: CPSIA Laws.

But this should still affect WAHMs and small diaper companies, etc. There was something on the news about small toy companies, I dvr'd it and will watch it later. I'm thankful for the news about used items though. Very thankful.

Re: CPSIA Laws.

Here is the crafts project part. I feel this allow most of us to be just fine. I really dont think this affects most of us. Read this and tell me what you think
http://www.cpsc.gov/ABOUT/Cpsia/crafts.pdf

also here is the wearing apparel section on phalates, which says it is just for TOYS and feeding/care items and specifially states teething items, and pajamas.

This also assures me that it is ok for diaper makes.
