Apr. 8 US: CPSC Approves Accreditation Changes for Third-Party Conformity Assessment Bodies

From Bureau Veritas Group:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has approved changes to the criteria for acceptance of accreditation of third-party conformity assessment bodies for testing to the lead paint and surface coating regulations in 16 CFR 1303. The changes require that currently approved third-party assessment bodies, also known as third-party testing laboratories, become accredited to perform one or more of three CPSC-approved test methods by April 5, 2013. Two of the test methods, CPSC-CHE1003-09 and CPSC-CH-E1003-09.1, involve wet chemistry techniques while the third, ASTM F2853, calls for the use of a specific piece of XRF equipment.
