It's interesting. CPSC has co-opted the term "voluntary" but it doesn't really mean that. The CPSIA and CPSC regulations have the full force of law in that they can hand down fines for viola ...

There are additional regulations coming down the line for baby carriers and only a minor part of it directly related to fabric. I wrote about it on my blog a while ago. Since then, there has been anot ...

Unfortunately, other than the drawstring guidelines, there are no other guidelines or rules regarding ties, belts, or sashes. I think the biggest concern with sashes are length. When tied, do they han ...

What is worrisome that Liberty lawn cottons, China silk, and many similar lightweight fabrics are not exempt, are not routinely treated with fire retardant, are likely to fall in the prohibited Class ...

Fabrics that need flammability testing need to be sent to a testing lab. Sometimes the fabric supplier will send you copies of their test reports, but not always.

The length of the drawstring outside of a fully expanded waist is new information.

The rest of it is a bit redundant from previous guidelines.

Footwear is another Catch-22 with the law. It may be helpful to review past recalls to see what kinds of things cause problems and what the CPSC may look at in the future.

That is the dilemma every one is facing. If you register, you are on a list that the CPSC or any gorilla consumer protection advocacy can use for whatever nefarious or ridiculous reasons they can come ...

This thing is still a mess. Honestly, I've been ignoring the CPSC for months. I hope the agency ends up on the Congressional spending cuts floor or some kind of self implosion. Too much to hope for, I ...

I would still exercise caution as there are still some major rules coming out in the next few months. The CPSC plans full enforcement in Feb 2011, which may entail changes in the status quo (My instin ...

Bonnet/Hat ties and apron ties fall into a grey area. At this point the rule focuses mostly on drawstrings of the neck and waist on outerwear, like jackets. BUT, there have been recalls for drawstring ...

The sad thing is that pre-CPSIA, the CPSC had the power to immediately take care of this. Now they can't because they are severely limited on how regulations can be written. All they can do is PR and ...
