CPSC product registration card rule published
The CPSC has issued a new final rule on product registration cards for durable infant and toddler products. The provisions of this part of the CPSIA are named in honor of Danny Keysar, whose parents founded KID. The new rule is composed of three elements: certain nursery products must come with registration cards, companies must retain data from the registration cards, and the products must permanently display certain contact and identifying information. It is hoped that both the cards and an online registration system, along with requirements for outreach in the event of a recall will increase recall effectiveness for these products.
