U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) notified the Federal Register of a proposed rulemaking on October 13th: Children’s Products, Children’s Toys, and Child Care Articles: Determinations Regarding Lead, ASTM F963 Elements, and Phthalates for Engineered Wood Products.

The CPSC is proposing this rule to determine that certain untreated and unfinished engineered wood products (EWPs) would not contain lead, the ASTM F963 elements, or specified phthalates that exceed the limits set forth under the CPSC’s statutes for children’s products, children’s toys, and child care articles. Therefore, based on the determinations, the specified EWPs would not be required to have third party testing for compliance with the requirements for lead, the ASTM F963 elements, or phthalates for children’s products, children’s toys, and child care articles.

The comment period is open until December 27, 2017.
