Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff have recommended that the agency seek public comments about ways to reduce the cost of third-party testing requirements for children’s products. The proposed request for comments is required under H.R. 2715, which President Barack Obama (D) signed into law on August 12, 2011. The recommendation will be presented to CPSC commissioners on October 12. If the recommendation is approved, the questions on which the agency would seek comment include whether sampling procedures be used for third-party testing, how to avoid redundant third-party testing, how products with many component parts be tested to comply with the requirements, and whether conformity with other national or international standards substitute for third-party testing.
