Textile industry seeks CPSC clarification on new lead standard

06
Jan '09
The National Textile Association, joined by ten other groups representing the apparel, fiber, textile, retail, and travel goods industries, has written to Nancy Nord, Acting Chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Commissioner Thomas Moore regarding proposed rulemaking regarding lead content limits for materials and products pursuant to the newly enacted Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).

The letter calls for clarifications to help reduce costly, unnecessary testing and compliance burdens of products and components that are inherently lead free or contain lead in amounts that are clearly below the lowest CPSIA lead limit and instead focus critical resources on products and components where there is the most risk.

The letter was signed by:
• American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA)
• American Fiber Manufacturers Association (AFMA)
• The Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD)
• The Hosiery Association (THA)
• National Cotton Council (NCC)
• National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO)
• National Retail Federation (NRF)
• National Textile Association (NTA)
• Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA)
• Travel Goods Association (TGA)
• U.S. Association of Importers of Textiles and Apparel (USA-ITA)
