Making a Submission: State Level Child Safety Protection Acts (CSPA)

Several state-level Child Safety Protection Acts (CSPA) require suppliers of children’s products to notify the state’s governing bodies when a Chemical of High Concern to Children (CHCC) is present in their product. The aim of the legislation is to reduce the risk of dangerous chemicals used in products intended for children under 12 years of age.

Your customer requires you to provide information and declarations for the products you supply to them.

Note: You can select and declare on multiple parts below if they contain the same restricted chemicals within the products/parts.

To complete the declaration, you must first have received the campaign email.

    If more than one Part/Style does not contain any of the Chemicals of High Concern to Children, you can make a bulk declaration by selecting those Parts/Styles using the checkboxes and clicking Declare # Selected Parts.

    Otherwise, if any of your Parts/Styles do contain Chemicals of High Concern to Children, please answer for each Part/Style individually.
