Effective from 10 February 2009, the CPSIA requires that the lead content for children's products cannot exceed 600 parts per million (ppm). The standard will be tightened to 300 ppm on 14 August 2009. Unless the CPSC determines that the 100 ppm standard is not feasible for a product or product category, the lead content ban will be further reduced to 100 ppm on 14 August 2011.
** J.N.’s zippers have passed the lead content standard from the US government law. Please contact us for the test reports and the samples for your own testing if necessary!
