Toy Industry Association (TIA) Statement on the Consumer Product
Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
June 29, 2010
The Toy Industry Association (TIA) is fully committed to a broad
range of initiatives that enhance toy safety. As such, TIA works
continuously with regulators, toy companies, retailers, consumer groups,
labs and conformity assessment experts to help toy companies and
laboratories assure compliance with strict federal toy safety laws.
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), signed into law
in August 2008 and regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
(CPSC), seeks to enhance the safety of all consumer goods in America.
Toys are a key focus of the Act.
The Association strongly supports the CPSC and its work to strengthen
toy safety requirements, and works closely with the CPSC to address
CPSIA implementation and compliance.
TIA’s Federal Government Affairs Team, in conjunction with
Education and Training Services, works year-round to provide members and
industry stakeholders with information (in the form of webinars and
Legislative and Safety updates) about the CPSIA. TIA has also made its
Toy Safety Certification Program® (TSCP®) freely available as
an online resource to help all toy companies, importers and testing
laboratories facilitate compliance with the CPSIA.
