Children’s Products

Have you met the federal safety requirement for children’s products before selling it? Well if you have not, here at AM testing we can do the testing for you and help you be compliant. As a CPSC certified 3rd party testing laboratory, we test all children’s products according to CPSIA regulations to ensure your product is in compliance with all safety requirements.

Children’s products are considered products in which children are not likely to interact/play with. They are designed or intended for use by children 12 years of age and under.

Products considered being children’s products are: books, potty seats, children’s furniture, arts & crafts, toothbrushes, toy organizers, etc.

Regulatory requirements for children’s products vary between each product. There is no “cookie cutter” guide to know if your product needs specific testing. In the lab, we evaluate the product and give a quote as to which testing requirements will need to be fulfilled for the product to be safe and compliant.

The CPSC requires these products to be tested to meet safety requirements for mechanical hazards, chemical properties, and flammability. Your product must always comply and have a certificate that shows conformity. So, do not get caught without one and have your product tested by us.
