CPSC Issues Procedures For Seeking Exemption From Lead In Children's Products Regulation

James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has published its procedures for considering requests for exemption from its regulation covering lead content in children's products. Because textile manufacturers contend their products are inherently lead-free, they may seek exemption from the testing and certification rules under those procedures. In an announcement in the March 11 Federal Register (74 FR  10475), the CPSC lays out details of how a request may be made.

On February 10, the CPSC issued a ruling prohibiting lead content in excess of 600 parts per million in products used by children under 12 years of age. In commenting on the rule, US textile and apparel manufacturers presented considerable evidence demonstrating that textiles do not contain lead. The March 11 notice said the commission is issuing a "final rule for requests for the commission to determine that a commodity or class of materials or a specific material does not exceed lead limits."
