CPSIA (HR4040): The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act
What is the CPSIA (HR4040) regulation?
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA-HR4040) is a recent federal law signed by President Bush in February 2008 to improve safety, accountability, and record-keeping in regard to consumer products especially products used by children under 12-years old.
The main points of this bill which manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers shall note are that it:
Why and how does this affect me?
Any manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers meeting the CPSIA HR4040 regulation guarantee that the products purchased for your children and students possess legally-limited lead quantities and assure you of child toy safety. If your current supplier is not aware of such law, cannot supply you the proof of conformity to such law, or meet the standards of third-party testing, they will no longer be allowed to import or sell their products in the U.S. market, thus affecting you directly.
Does Montessori Outlet comply with this standard?
Yes, Montessori Outlet has been in compliance with the CPSIA (HR4040) regulation even prior to its effective date. All of Montessori Outlet's products are tested at the world-renowned German TUV Rheinland Laboratory and UK Intertek Laboratory based on the newest federal safety standards. Product safety has always been our top priority, and we enforce the strictest safety standards at our own factory and upon our suppliers.
