Increased Regulations on Toymakers

Posted on: June 15, 2009

While any parent would want to be sure that the toys their child is playing with are free of lead and other toxic chemicals, legislation passed to assist in the event of toy recall may put small-business owners out of business.

A provision of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) requires that children’s products carry a label or permanent mark with manufacturing details.  However, many small toymakers and artisans are frustrated by the complexity of the regulation and may not be able to afford to comply, and the regulations may take effect as early as August.

Will the CSPIA labeling regulations impact your business?  Let us know in the comments.
