Title of document
Regulatory Flexibility Act Section 610 Review of the Testing and Labeling Regulations Pertaining to Product Certification of Children's Products, Including Reliance on Component Part Testing (4 page(s), in English)

Notification of section 610 review and request for comments - The Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) is conducting a review of the regulations for third party testing and certification to demonstrate compliance with safety standards for children's products, under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA). That section requires the CPSC to review within 10 years after their issuance regulations that have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The testing and component part regulations were promulgated in 2011. The CPSC seeks comment to determine whether, consistent with the CPSC's statutory obligations, these regulations should be maintained without change, or modified to minimize the significant impact of the rules on a substantial number of small entities.
