On July 20, 2011, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted to issue the notice of requirements for accreditation of third-party conformity assessment bodies for testing to standard ASTM F-963. With these requirements in place, manufacturers, importers and private labelers will need to test with a third-party testing laboratory. It has been mandatory for toys to comply with ASTM F963 under the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
The CPSC also imposed a stay of enforcement until December 31, 2011. After this date, all toys manufactured or imported into the US will require a certification of compliance based on testing conducted by an accredited third-party testing laboratory.
