How the CPSIA Affects Publishers and Book Manufacturers

Signed into law in 2008, the CPSIA is the most wide sweeping consumer product safety law enacted in several decades. The law was passed by strong majorities in both the House and Senate as a response to the high profile recalls of Chinese toys and products containing lead. The Act became effective on February 10, 2009, and requires that all products intended for use by children 12 and under, including books, will need to meet specific lead and phthalates limits, mandatory toy standards, and other requirements.

Hess Print Solutions and the CPSIA

Hess Print Solutions continues to be an active and responsible manufacturer, consistently producing safe, high quality products that have lead and phthalates levels well below the Act’s most stringent requirements.

While the Consumer Product Safety Commission has approved a one-year “Stay of Enforcement” for certain testing and certification requirements through February 10, 2010, Hess Print Solutions has conducted independent laboratory testing to ensure that all products we currently manufacture are below the lead and phthalates limits as required by the law. Further details, as well as sample test results, are provided here for your convenience.

We will continue working in partnership with other industry partners to stay abreast of this important legislation , while maintaining stringent safety and quality control standards to ensure our products meet or exceed the CPSIA requirements.
