To Whom It May Concern:
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) was passed by the US Congress on
August 14, 2008. This new law expands current Consumer Product Safety Committee authority and creates new responsibilities for those who make, distribute and sell consumer products. This new law also created new regulations for “Children’s products”.
Among the provisions of the CPSIA was a change in the acceptable levels of Lead (Pb) in Paintand surface coatings for all consumer products – the standard was lowered to less than 90ppm of
Lead effective August 2009. The Marketing group works with suppliers that produce products with painted surfaces - and have established a policy to only work with those suppliers that are and will continue to be compliant with the applicable rules.
The bulk of this statue referred to ‘children’s product’ meaning a consumer product designed or intended primarily for children 12 years of age or younger. Whereas Marketing Group’s online catalog items are designed to meet applicable Federal regulations, not all products are designed for, or intended for use by children under the age of 12. As of August 2011, accessible substrates of any children’s product may not contain more than 100ppm of Lead.
