CPSC RIN: 3041-AC94 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Certificates of Compliance 
Abstract: Section 3 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) amended section 14(a) of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) to require manufacturers and private labelers of certain products to issue certificates declaring that their products being imported or distributed in commerce have been tested and are in compliance with all safety rules under the CPSA or similar rules, bans, standards, or regulations under any other Act enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Pursuant to amendments made to section 14(a)(4) of the CPSA, the Commission may designate who must issue the certificate if there is more than one manufacturer or more than one private labeler. The rule may exempt all other manufacturers of such product or all other private labelers of the product (as the case may be) from the requirement under section 14(a)(1), (2), or (3) of the CPSA to issue a certificate with respect to such product. On November 18, 2008, the Commission published a final rule in the Federal Register (73 FR 68328) limiting the parties who must issue certificates of testing to the importer and, in the case of domestically produced products, the U.S. manufacturer. The rule, now codified at 16 CFR part 1110, did not place obligations on private labelers. The Commission is considering proposing an amendment to the regulations to clarify which parties must issue a certificate. A proposed rule amending section 1110 would clarify certificate requirements in light of new rules on testing and labeling and component part testing, would require that electronic certificates be filed at the time of entry for imported products, and would place the obligation to certify domestically produced products on the domestic manufacturer or private labeler.
