Relying on Component Part Testing or Certification, or Another Party’s Finished Product Testing or Certification, Final Rule

Third-Party Testing

CPSIA §102

 

Manufacturers or importers must test children’s products using a CPSC-accepted third party laboratory. Manufacturers or importers may be able to rely on testing performed other suppliers of component parts, if requirements for doing so are met.

Regulations at 16 CFR Part 1109 set forth conditions and requirements for relying on component part testing or certification, or another party’s finished product testing or certification, to meet testing and certification requirements.

  • Subpart A establishes general requirements for component part testing and certification, and for relying on component part testing or certification, or another party’s finished product certification or testing.
  • Subpart B sets forth additional requirements for component part testing of chemical content.
  • Subpart C describes the conditions and requirements for composite testing.

Manufacturers or importers must issue a children’s product certificate (CPC) based on third party testing by a CPSC-accepted laboratory, stating that their children’s product complies with the applicable children’s product safety rule(s).
