The CPSIA requires domestic manufacturers, including printers, importers, and private labelers of children's products, children's toys, and child care articles to test their products and certify that they comply with the new lead and phthalate content limits established by the CPSIA. For children's products manufactured by printers, such as books, magazines, flashcards, baseball cards, posters, calendars, etc., a formal Children's Product Certificate (Certificate of Compliance) must be issued by the printer and accompany all products.
