Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act **UPDATE**

Any determination as to whether a particular product is designed and intended for use by a child 12 years of age or younger, would be made on a case by case basis after consideration of the following factors:

-A statement by the manufacturer about the intended use of the product, including a label on the product if such statement is reasonable.

-Whether the product is represented in its packaging, display, promotion or advertising as appropriate for use by the ages specified.

-Whether the product is commonly recognized by consumers as being intended for use by a child of the ages specified.

-The Age Determination Guidelines issued by the Commission staff in September 2002, and any successor to such guidelines.

A manufacturer must apply these factors their products and then consider whether it is “for use by the child when the child plays” to determine whether a product meets the definition of a children’s toy. The use of the product by the child for play is a fundamental aspect of such a determination. The Commission will be evaluating this using staff from Health Sciences, Human Factors, and Compliance, and hopes to provide additional guidance on this issue. In the interim, the Commission staff plans to use the definition of toy in the ASTM F963-07 toy standard for guidance.

This is an ongoing forum issue and you can sound off here.
