Americans pay special attention to Christmas gifts, and Halloween toys and Halloween costumes must be the highlight. I believe that the sellers on the US site have already prepared the inventory of Halloween toys and Halloween costumes. At this time, if your product cannot be sold because of the lack of CPC certification, it will be a huge loss.
What is CPC certification?
The Children's Product Certificate (CPC) applies to all products that are primarily intended for children 12 years of age and younger. It is provided by the manufacturer if it is produced locally in the United States, and provided by the importer if it is produced in other countries. That is to say, cross-border sellers, as "importers", want to sell products produced by Chinese factories to the United States, they need to provide a CPC certificate to Amazon as a retailer/distributor. Although it is called a "certificate", it is essentially a "book" drafted and solely responsible by the manufacturer/importer, declaring that its product complies with all applicable local U.S. children's product safety regulations and other laws and regulations. There is no cost to the CPC certificate itself, but it needs to be based on the three-party certification that the product has passed.
What are the basic requirements for Halloween costumes on Amazon in the United States?
1. The CPC certificate is based on the test results of three-party testing laboratories accredited by CPSC;
2. The CPC certificate is issued by the seller, and the tripartite laboratory can provide assistance in drafting the CPC certificate;
3. Children's products comply with all relevant safety rules and regulations;
Information to include in the CPC certificate required for export of Halloween costumes to the United States:
① Product information (name and description);
②All laws and regulations applicable to the product;
③ Information of the importer or manufacturer (in the United States): including name, address and telephone number;
④Contact information of the holder of the test result file supporting the certificate: name, address, email address and telephone number;
