Mintz Levin appeals CPSC for more efficient lab testing practices

15
Jul '09
Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. announced that it filed a petition on behalf of Intertek and the American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) to formally request that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) approve more sensible lab testing procedures.

Intertek and AAFA have asked the CPSC to recognize, as acceptable under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, specific test methods that will determine the presence of lead paint in toys and other children's products. If approved, these new testing procedures would result in the destruction of far fewer samples and would save manufacturers millions of dollars without compromising test reliability.

Under its regulations, the CPSC has a "reasonable time" to act on this Petition, and the Petitioners have also requested a public hearing to discuss these proposals.

The text of the Petition to the CPSC:
