Aug. 3 US: CPSC Votes on the Feasibility of Meeting the 100 ppm Total Lead Requirement

From: Bureau Veritas Group

On July 13, 2011, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted 3-2 that a 100 ppm total lead limit for substrates in children’s products is technologically feasible despite concerns expressed by several CPSC commissioners. The 100 ppm lead limit is scheduled to go into effect on August 14th of this year. This requirement will apply to new and existing inventory unless action is taken by Congress to change the law so that this requirement does not apply to products manufactured before August 14, 2011.
