Summary: Briefing package for the Commission to vote to publish a FR notice with a new final rule for a determination for unfinished and untreated wood for ASTM heavy elements.
Extract: Cadmium. For cadmium, the studies examined showed cadmium in tree core samples and wood at levels below the ASTM solubility limit of 75 ppm. Studies that measured cadmium in hydroponic samples showed cadmium levels in root, stem bark, stem wood, and leaf parts above 75 ppm. In a similar manner, shoots grown in pots containing varying amounts of cadmium added, showed cadmium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit in leaves, stems, and roots. Chromium. For chromium, one study at a chromate-contaminated site found chromium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit of 60 ppm in roots, but 11 measurements were below the detection limit for leaves, wood, and bark.

Summary: Report to the Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate on the Status of CPSC Efforts to Provide Third Party Testing Cost Relief While Still Assuring Compliance
Extract: 7 The elements are antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and selenium. 8 The materials are unfinished woods, cotton, linen, wool, silk, bamboo, beeswax, and paper. The cost of the contract is $77,229. -6-recommendations for determinations, as well as conducting an economic analysis. In Fiscal Year 2015, CPSC staff intends to submit to the Commission a draft NPR and briefing package recommending that the Commission determine that certain materials do not contain any of the elements listed in Table 1 of the Toy Standard at concentrations above their solubility limit, and thus, do not require third party testing to assure compliance.

Summary: Concentrations of Selected Elements in Unfinished Wood and Other Natural Materials, Contract No. CPSC-D-12-0001, TERA Contractor report for CPSC
Extract: 3.2.4 Cadmium The following information on Factors 2 and 3 for cadmium is summarized from the ATSDR Toxicological Profile for cadmium (ATSDR, 2012a). Cadmium is a naturally occurring soft, silver-white element found in the earth's crust, and only exists in the Cd+2 state. ATSDR (2012a) lists and reports chemical properties for cadmium, cadmium carbonate, cadmium chloride, cadmium oxide, cadmium sulfate, and cadmium sulfide, of which cadmium chloride and cadmium sulfate are soluble in water.

Summary: Study on the Applicability of X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry for Use in ASTM F963 Total Element Screening
Extract: The heavy metals limited under this standard include antimony ("Sb"), arsenic ("As"), barium ("Ba"), cadmium ("Cd"), chromium ("Cr"), mercury ("Hg") and selenium ("Se"). The ASTM F963-11 standard test method for determining the soluble element content involves a 2-hour extraction in 0.07M hydrochloric acid and analysis of the extract solution by atomic spectroscopy. The standard also allows for total element content screening in which the test material is digested and analyzed by atomic spectroscopy, and if the total content of each of the elements is below the soluble limits prescribed, the material is considered to be in conformance with the standard, and no further testing is required.

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.
