Title: Update to CPSC Rules for Testing and Labeling Pertaining to Product Certification and Requirements Pertaining to Third Party Conformity Assessment Bodies 

In December 2017, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) issued new versions of the standards, "ISO/IEC 17025:2017 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories” and "ISO/IEC 17011:2004 Conformity assessment - Requirements for Accreditation Bodies Accrediting Conformity Assessment Bodies.” The CPSC regulation for acceptance of third-party testing laboratories is 16 CFR part 1112. The CPSC regulation for testing and labeling pertaining to product certification is 16 CFR part 1107. In FY 2021, staff is scheduled to submit a briefing package to the Commission that recommends a direct final rule to amend 16 CFR part 1112 to update the incorporation by reference from ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to ISO/IEC 17025:2017. The direct final rule will also amend 16 CFR part 1107 to update the incorporation by reference from ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and the incorporation by reference from ISO/IEC 17011:2004 to ISO/IEC 17011:2017.
