Yes, it's a big hush hush. If I ask in any store (hobby store that sells kits for children to make stuff, childrens apparel store and second hand children's stores that sells tons of bows in every color)
I either get the "what are you talking about" look or "no, this is lead free of caurse" and a very unpleasant approach.
I always go out of the store regretting I ever asked.
And it's not those peolpe that will help us anyway. Useless..

No need to purchase expensive compliance software or subsciptions. You can just generate CPSIA certificates online to save as PDFs with an easy-to-use form at:

These links don't work any more and these posts are from 2009, and therefore I want to ask if these third party testing issues are no longer applicable?

Because at this point I am just thinking that as long as my labeling is accurate, and I don't have any safety hazards (like unattached drawstrings, etc.) that I am on the right track.

Can someone let me know?

Thank you,
Melissa

I'm also looking into these and am finding conflicting information. Are you going to be making small batch? I came across this info which seems to clarify for me a bit...there are exemptions depending on what your making and how much. Hope this helps, I'm still trying to sort through eveything myself. http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Business--Manufacturing/Small-Business-Resources1/Small-Batch-Manufacturers-and-Third-Party-/

This email will discuss a new proposed rule regarding phthalates determinations and a 1-day Children’s Sleepwear Seminar.

Children’s Sleepwear Seminar

The Consumer Product Safety Commission staff is holding a 1-day Flammable Fabrics Act (FFA) Children's Sleepwear Seminar. The Seminar will focus on testing, certification, and other compliance guidance relating to mandatory FFA standards and requirements for children's sleepwear. The Seminar will be held on October 20, 2016, in the 4th floor Hearing Room at the CPSC offices in Bethesda Towers, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814. We invite interested parties to participate in or attend the Seminar.

Persons interested in serving on a panel, presenting information, or attending the Seminar should register online at: http://www.cpsc.gov/meetingsignup.html (click on the link titled, “Children's Sleepwear Seminar”). Some sessions of the Seminar may be available through a webcast, but viewers will not be able to interact with the panels and presenters.
