Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)

The primary goal of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is to protect U.S. consumers from injury or death due to a hazardous product.  Products with specific safety standards mandated by the CPSC include adult wearing apparel, children’s wearing apparel, children’s toys, articles intended for use by children, writing instruments, carpets and rugs.

Since 2009, the focus on lead exposure and children’s products increased with the enactment of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) as well as heightened awareness related to labeling requirements for banned hazardous substances under the Federal Hazard Substance Act (FHSA).

Many of these products are imported by NMG and it is our expectation of the vendor to determine the CPSC requirements prior to purchase order placement.  We urge our vendors to review the U.S. regulations that pertain to the goods that you sell. There may be other requirements that apply.  We encourage foreign exporters to review the information in this section and utilize the provided links to gain detailed information and additional guidance.
