To whom is the Children's Product Certificate provided?
If you are a manufacturer or importer, you must "deliver" a Children's Product Certificate to your distributors and retailers. Additionally, federal law requires you to provide the CPSC and the Director of Customs with a copy of the Children's Product Certificate upon request.
The requirement to "meet" the CoC is satisfied if the manufacturer or importer provides its distributors and retailers with a reasonable means of obtaining a certificate. You can provide resellers and retailers with an actual hard copy of the certificate, or you can provide a dedicated website with that specific certificate on your invoice.
When is a Children's Product Certificate required?
The CoC must "accompany" product shipments and "deliver" to distributors and retailers. Upon request, the CoC must be provided to the CPSC and the Commissioner of Customs.
Manufacturers or importers are required by law to issue a Children's Product Certificate; a certificate to accompany each product or shipment of products; this certificate to be provided to retailers and distributors; and to CPSC upon request.
Certificate Requirements Certificates must be based on passing testing of sufficient samples of each product by a CPSC-accepted laboratory.
Is a Children's Product Certificate required for every shipment of a product?
Yes. The law requires that every import (and domestic manufacturer) shipment must be accompanied by the required certificates. This requirement applies to imported products and domestically manufactured products. According to CPSC rules, an electronic certificate is "incidental" goods if the certificate is identified by a unique identifier and is accessible via a World Wide Web URL or other electronic means, provided that the URL or other electronic means and the unique identifier are created and shipped.
The Commission has issued a rule that specifically allows the use of an electronic certificate as long as: the Commission can reasonably use it; it contains all the information required by Section 14 of the Consumer Product Safety Act; and complies with the other requirements of the rule.
Can one certificate cover multiple products?
A Children's Product Certificate may apply to (or "cover") multiple batches or batches of product if you have exercised due care to ensure that each additional batch or batch continues to be produced in compliance with all applicable children Product Safety Rules.
Additionally, while a single Children's Product Certificate may "cover" more than one shipping or production unit, if the manufacturer chooses to do so, the certificate will need to describe the date range of the product covered, using batch/batch information or other identifying information. For each new unit of goods or product entered into the commercial flow, the Children's Product Certificate will need to be updated to reflect the new product group. Manufacturers of finished children's products will need this information to ensure the accuracy of the tracking labels affixed to each children's product and its packaging.
Penalties for violating certificate requirements?
Violation of the Consumer Product Safety Act, failure to provide a Children's Product Certificate, issuance of a false certificate of conformity under certain conditions, and failure to comply with Section 14 of the Consumer Product Safety Act. Violations of the Consumer Product Safety Act may result in civil penalties that may result in criminal penalties and forfeiture of assets.
