U.S. federal law requires crib products sold in the U.S. to comply with the standards and additional requirements for cribs, including the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA). Manufacturers and importers of cribs must have their cribs tested for compliance in a CPSC-approved third-party laboratory on a Children's Product Certificate before they can sell their products in the continental United States.
The specific criteria that a crib needs to meet for CPC certification are as follows:
1. Safety standards for baby cots
16 CFR Part 1220, ASTM F406-19
2. CPSIA standard requirements
1. Surface Coating Restrictions Non-full size cribs shall not be painted with lead content exceeding 0.009%.
2. Lead content limits The total lead content in any accessible parts of a non-full-size crib shall not exceed 100 ppm (0.01%).
3. Phthalates Content Restrictions Plasticizing ingredients for non-full-size cribs shall not contain more than 0.1% of the following eight specified phthalates: bis(2-ethylhexyl phthalate) ( DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) ), di-n-amyl phthalate (DPENP), di-n-hexyl phthalate (DEXP) and dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP).
4. Tested and certified non-full-size cribs, like all products designed or used primarily for children 12 years of age or younger, must be tested by an accredited third-party laboratory recognized by the CPSC to ensure compliance with non-full-size Crib standards, and all other applicable children's product safety rules, including lead paint, lead and phthalate limits. Under this test, a domestic manufacturer (or importer) of a non-full-size crib must issue a Children's Product Certificate specifying each applicable rule and showing that the product complies with those rules.
5. The registration card for each manufacturer of non-full-size cribs must include
(1) A consumer registration form with postage paid for each product;
(2) Keep records of consumers registering their products with manufacturers, in addition, manufacturers add permanent marks, instructions on products;
(3) The name and contact information of the manufacturer;
(4) Model name and serial number;
(5) The date of manufacture of each such product. ;
6. Tracking Labels Non-full-size cribs must have tracking labels or other distinguishable permanent markings affixed to the product and its packaging. Tracking labels should, to the extent practicable, become a permanent distinguishing mark on the product and its packaging, and must contain certain basic information, including (1) the name of the manufacturer or private label, (2) the place and date of manufacture, and ( 3) Cohort information such as batch or run number.
