CPSC Commissioner Nancy Nord to Discuss CPSIA Regulations at 2012 SGIA Expo

As we gear up for the 2012 SGIA Expo (Las Vegas, October 18–20), SGIA has announced a new addition to this year’s educational program. The Honorable Nancy Nord, Commissioner of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), will sit down for a conversation with SGIA’s Marci Kinter about navigating the recent changes to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), which went into effect on January 1, 2012.

Upon its implementation, the Act now requires that all children’s products be tested and verified so that both lead and phthalate limits are met. This invaluable session will discuss where we are now, after 10 months in practice and provide an overview of the testing programs that must be implemented by February 2013, among other important updates.

This presentation is a must-attend for any facility involved in the manufacture of children’s products. But your information resources don’t stop there. SGIA members can take advantage of additional, exclusive fact sheets right now:

  • Component-Part Testing
  • General Conformity Certificate
  • Small Batch Manufacturers
  • Tracking Labels
