US passes Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act

The new 'Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008' was passed by the US Government late last month.

This Act mainly focuses on children's products in the US, including shoes, clothing, toys and so on.

According to this law the requirement on the lead's content in kids products must be within the 0.06-0.009 percent band. The diethyl phthalate content, namely DEHP (di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate), DBP (Dibutylis Phthalate) and BBP (butyl benzyl phthalate) must be lower than 0.1 percent.

Besides, products must be examined and approved by an authorized third party.

Experts say that this law will affect Chinese enterprises, especially since 80 percent of children's shoes in the US markets are Made-in-China.

Insiders believe that the Act is bound to hit Chinese children's goods industry as it will raise export cost, and complicate the trade procedures.

However, experts point out that the export enterprises that fail to meet these standards may have to pay a fine as high as US $100000.

Thus, it is important that Chinese companies understand the terms of this Act, make necessary adjustments in the manufacturing process to abide by it.
