List of CPSC Accepted Product Testing Labs: An Overview

Posted on

CPSC approved product testing labs

If you are importing or manufacturing children’s products in the United States, you must comply with the CPSIA requirements. This includes lab testing, which must be performed by a CPSC-accepted lab.

Once your product passes the relevant tests, the lab issues a test report, which proves compliance with the requirements.

Note that a lab is not “accepted” for all CPSIA-covered products by default. Instead, it might only be accepted for specific regulatory parts, such as 16 CFR Part 1250, and for some of their facilities.

Methodology

We have selected testing companies that are featured on the List of CPSC-Accepted Testing Laboratories. Also, we have prioritized companies that have testing facilities in both the United States and Asia.
