CPSC Grants One Year Stay on Required Testing & Certification of Certain Products
Halleluiah! The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today that it would grant a one year stay on the testing and certification of certain products under the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
Individuals and groups have been contacting the CPSC with their concerns and there is even a petition requesting that the CPSIA be repealed.
Consumers who purchase products for children 12 and under--including books--should keep on eye on what happens over the next year as opponents of the current version of the CPSIA continue their efforts to get the law repealed or amended.
You can read a press release about the one year stay from the CPSC here.
