CPSC to Consider Last Minute Stay Request for Lead Content Limit

This Monday, February 9th, the CPSC will vote on whether to grant a request from the Consumer Product Safety Commission coaltion of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM CPSC Coalition) to stay the effective date of the new lead content limit of 600 parts per million (ppm) which is to become effective on the following day.

Citing to the practical impossibility of compliance, the NAM CPSC Coaltion, comprised of more than 60 manufacturers, requested a stay of 185 days or until 90 days after the commission issues final rules implementing the lead content limit found in Section 101 of the act.
