On August 2008, the U.S. Congress enacted the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), one of the most comprehensive transformations of consumer-product safety regulations since the 1970s. The Act expands the role of the Consumer Product Safety Commission in ensuring the safety of consumer products, especially those designed for children.

Manufacturers, importers and retailers of most consumer products will have to come comply with many provisions of CPSIA, including:
>       Rigorous lead restrictions for children's products
>       A ban on phthalates (chemicals used to soften plastic) in children's toys
>       Mandatory inclusion of consumer product registration cards required for certain infant and juvenile use durable products.
>       Conversion of a voluntary toy safety standard to a mandatory standard
>       Mandatory third-party testing and certification of toys and children's products beginning with the new lower limits on lead in paint content.
>       Issue General Conformity Certificate (GCC) for all consumer products subject to CPSC enforced standards, rules, and bans ; or Certificate Of Conformity (CoC) for children’s products based on mandatory testing by a third party conformity assessment body (TPCA) accredited by CPSC. There is 1 year stay of enforcement for some GCC and 3rd party requirements.
Certain provisions cover more than products just off the assembly line, existing inventories are also affected.
