Summary: Denied Correction Request from (PEER) Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility on Synthetic Turf Under the Information Quality Act and CPSC's Response
Extract: Nor does he dispute the recitation in our complaint about the long list of dangerous chemicals found in shredded tires (including arsenic, benzene, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, mercury, carbon black and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and that children playing on these surfaces risk direct and indirect exposure to these chemicals. Furthermore, just looking at the grass blades in isolation, the 2008 Report did no "testing for other toxics, including those that are of concern for children; in particular, toxins such as cadmium and phthalates are required to be tested for in children's products," as noted in our complaint. c) Lead Exposure Ignored.

Summary: Briefing Package: Meeting Notice for CPSC Workshop on Potential Ways to Reduce Third Party Testing Costs
Extract: 5 of ASTM F963-11 lists the limits for the soluble amounts of eight elements (antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and selenium) allowable in toy substrates. DRAFT 2-12-14 4 The CPSIA generally requires that children's products that are subject to a CPSC children's product safety rule must be tested by a third party CPSC-accepted laboratory for compliance with applicable CPSC rules. 15 U.S.C. 2063(a)(2)1. Public Law No. 112-28 (August 12, 2011) (Pub. L. No. 112-28) directed the CPSC to seek comment on "opportunities to reduce the cost of third party testing requirements consistent with assuring compliance with any applicable consumer product safety rule, ban, standard, or regulation.
11/05/2013Lead Testing for Children's Metal Jewelry FAQ (100%)
Summary: Lead Testing for Children's Metal Jewelry FAQ
Extract: Staff encourages manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers to employ methods such as the methodology published for lead in children's metal jewelry, and standard methods referenced therein such as ASTM F963, ASTM D5517, and AOAC 974.02. In addition to total lead analysis and acid extraction tests, wipe testing and saline extraction testing may be appropriate for some items, depending on their method of use, size, etc. CPSC staff reports on lead in vinyl miniblinds (September 1996) and lead and cadmium in children's polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products (November 1997) should be reviewed for discussions of lead limits and testing of these type of products.

Extract: There are strict limits on lead, cadmium, arsenic, and phthalates in various children's products. A capstone moment in CPSC's implementation of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act was the creation of independent, third-party testing of children's products. Independent testing is taking place all over the world. We have used all of our know-how and all of the tools in our toolbox to protect kids from dangerous, high-powered magnets-in toys and desk sets. CPSC staff have filed lawsuits, initiated federal rulemaking, and issued compelling warnings-via YouTube and our Neighborhood Safety Network.

Summary: Keynote address to the FJATA, Mohegan Sun, Ct. Good afternoon everyone. Brent [Cleaveland], thank you very much for that kind introduction, and for your leadership during a transformative time for the association. I truly appreciate the inv
Extract: team worked with Customs and Border Protection to inspect children's jewelry and we turned back a shipment of violative jewelry that had excessive cadmium. We also stayed vigilant in the marketplace, expanding our lead surveillance program to include cadmium. The global system of safety that we established, along with the jewelry standard going into effect, have shifted the trend lines back in the right direction. Here is some proof. Since 2010, we have not had a recall because of excessive cadmium since 2010. Since 2011, we have had just a handful of jewelry recalls due to excessive lead. In 2011 and 2012, we performed nearly 19,000 screenings of various products for cadmium and we only found five pieces of children's jewelry that raised a red flag.

Extract: ASTM F963-11 includes restrictions on the maximum solubility of eight elements (antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and selenium) in coatings and substrates of toys subject to that standard. The CPSIA also limits the concentration of six prohibited phthalates in component parts of children's toys and child care articles. The CPSIA limits the lead content of component parts of children's products to 100 ppm (currently) in each accessible component part. A children's product is a consumer product that is designed and intended primarily for children 12 years old and younger.

Summary: Denial Letter: Petition regarding Cadmium in Consumer Products, Especially Toy Metal Jewelry (Petition HP 10-2)
Extract: That report also provided a summary of the test results from CPSC Laboratory Sciences staff, who analyzed 384 pieces ofchildren's metal jewelry for lead to evaluate ingestion and mouthing scenarios, and assessed the potential toxicity associated with cadmium and cadmium-containing compounds. Subsequently, on October 14,2010, CPSC staff prepared another report which was peer reviewed, "Children's Cadmium-Containing Metal Jewelry." This report reviewed the available data and results regarding exposure and risk to cadmium, summarized the relevant toxicology for cadmium, and derived limits for exposure, which, if exceeded, could result in adverse health effects. These reports are available at: http://www.cpsc.gov/library/foialfoiall/os/cadmiumjewelry.pdf.
