As of 11/12/08, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has called for a new requirement for most consumer products. Details are still being finalized, but it pertains to most consumer products. It will call for a General Conformity Certificate to accompany all shipments, certifying that the products have been tested and meet with whatever testing standards pertain to that particular product, and will need to be signed off by both the manufacturer and importer. I am working on obtaining the updates necessary to assist my clients with this new regulation, and the preparation of the required General Conformity Certificates (GCC). Please feel free to contact me to help you begin the necessary procedures for this requirement.
