The cost of a normal CPC certificate is about £2000, if there are more material points, it will be calculated separately.
During the testing process, the CPSIA standard test needs to be issued by a laboratory authorized by the US CPSC Consumer Product Safety Association. Authorization can be found on the CPSC website. In addition, since the testing of the CPC certificate involves many chemical tests, it is related to the material of the product. The more material a product has, the higher the cost. According to chemical testing rules, different colors of the same material also need to be tested individually. Therefore, it is recommended that sellers direct raw materials to avoid repeated charges and useless operations.
