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.

Summary: Request for Information Regarding Third Party Testing for Lead Content, Phthalate Content, and the Solubility of the Eight Elements Listed in ASTM F963-11 This Federal Register Notice has been updated to correct the Docket Number. Action N
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.

Summary: Notice of Proposed Rulemaking - Update to Strong Sensitizer Supplemental Definition and Notice of Availability for Staff's Strong Sensitizer Guidance Document, February 13, 2013
Extract: This standard addresses nickel, cadmium, hazardous magnets, and certain chemicals in surface coatings in children's metal jewelry, and it incorporates limits on nickel migration, consistent with international jewelry standards.13 II. Recommended Changes to the Supplemental Strong Sensitizer Definition Currently, determining whether a substance is a strong sensitizer under the FHSA supplemental definition is complex. Staff believes that its draft proposed revisions to the supplemental definition of "strong sensitizer" will help clarify the definition.
