CPSIA COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
Thanks for your inquiry about our products regarding our compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations. In August 2008, the CPSIA made a number of changes to consumer product safety laws in the USA. Under this law, the amount of total lead allowed in children’s products was gradually reduced. Effective August 14, 2011 no children’s product may contain more than 100 parts per million (ppm) total lead. The lead content of any surface coating is limited to 90 ppm.
We are pleased to tell you that YES, Melissa & Doug products are compliant with the CPSIA regulations. Since our founding, we have had a comprehensive testing program in place for all of the products we produce and sell. Our testing programs have always been in compliance with all US consumer product safety regulations, and we will continue to stay compliant even as some of these laws evolve and change.
As a result, you can continue buying our products with confidence knowing they comply with the lead standards under the CPSIA. Of course, we also have General Conformity Certificates readily available for products produced after November 2008 as required by the CPSIA as further assurance of our products’ compliance to CPSIA.
