The US SPSC is based on CPSIA, which is a regulation and a standard that specifies product quality. CPSIA is the Security Improvement Act signed into effect by Bush of the United States on August 14, 2008. The Act is the toughest consumer protection bill since the establishment of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in 1972. The CPSIA Act expands the range of products that need to be tested and certified. Testing and certification are required for products under the control of the CPSC's standards, prohibitions, and enforcement rules established under this Act. The CPSIA regulations are divided into two parts, the first part is related to "Children's Product Safety", and the second part is related to "Consumer Product Safety Commission Reform".
