Dear Valued Customer,
On August 14, 2008 President Bush signed into law the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA 2008). This law will change the requirements associated with consumer products and with children's products in particular. The CPSIA defines a "children's product" as "a consumer product designed or intended primarily for children 12 years of age or younger".
The CPSIA includes requirements associated with books that Wocto Publishing offers.
On Jan. 30, 2009, the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted to issue a one-year-stay on specific testing and certification requirements outlined in paragraphs 14 (a) (1) (2) and (3) of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSIA 2008) as amended by subsection 102 (a) of the CPSIA. Section 102 states that any manufacturer of an item that falls under the rules outlined in CPSIA or any Act overseen by CPSC is required to certify compliance based on reasonable and/or third-party testing. *
