GOOD NEWS FOR OUR US RESELLERS:

US: Fabric and yarn exempt from CPSIA lead testing rules

By just-style.com | 21 August 2009

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has voted to exempt textiles from the lead testing and certification requirements for children's products covered by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).

The exemption, details of which were released yesterday (20 August), becomes effective upon publication in the Federal Register, which should occur within the next few days.

However, the CPSIA says that while fabric and yarn (including unembellished socks and hosiery) does not now need to be tested, the snaps, buttons, zippers found in a garment are not part of this rule - which means the final article of clothing still needs to be tested.

The CPSIA legislation aims to improve the safety of children's products - and in particular protect children from poisoning - by limiting the amount of lead and phthalates (chemicals commonly found in plastics) found in a range of items, including apparel and footwear, on sale in the US.

Earlier this week, the maximum allowable total lead content of items for children aged 12 and under fell by half to 300 parts per million (ppm). The allowable lead content falls again on 14 August 2011, to 100 ppm.

Under yesterday's ruling, materials exempt from the CPSIA lead laws now include:

• Textiles (excluding after-treatment applications, including screen prints, transfers, decals or other prints) consisting of:
(a) natural fibres (dyed or undyed) including, but not limited to, cotton, kapok, flax, linen, jute, ramie, hemp, kenaf, bamboo, coir, sisal, silk, wool (sheep), alpaca, llama, goat (mohair, cashmere), rabbit (angora), camel, horse, yak, vicuna, qiviut, guanaco;
(b) manufactured fibres (dyed or undyed) including, but not limited to, rayon, azlon, lyocell, acetate, triacetate, rubber, polyester, olefin, nylon, acrylic, modacrylic, aramid, spandex.

• Printing inks that use the CMYK process (excluding spot colours, other inks that are not used in CMYK process, inks that do not become part of the substrate under 16 CFR part 1303 and inks used in after-treatment applications, including screen prints, transfers, decals, or other prints).

The textile and apparel industry had long argued that testing fabric and fibres did not make sense, placed an unproductive burden on them, and required safe products to undergo costly or unnecessary testing.

The CPSIA says it reached its decision on fabrics and dyes after studying hundreds of test reports and analyses that examined lead levels in various textile and apparel products.
"After reviewing and verifying this test data, the staff was able to determine that most textile products are manufactured using processes that do not introduce lead or result in an end product that would exceed the CPSIA's lead limits," it said
