Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act CPSIA


Vartest Laboratories, Inc. was one of the first laboratories to be added to the CPSIA’s list of accredited laboratories in 2008.
With state of the art equipment and the newest technologies available on the market, Vartest provides the services necessary for your company to comply with the demanding requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) for children’s products sold in the United States.

With our superb service, accurate test results, and fast turn-around times, we are able to work with you on your testing program to ensure that your company’s products are meeting the limits set forth by the CPSIA.

Vartest provides comprehensive testing on your garments, fabrics, toys, etc., for metals, including lead (pb). Our GCMS is able to quantify all six phthalates (DINP, DIDP, DnOP, DEHP, DBP, BBP), which are regulated substances added to plastic products to increase flexibility.

Our wet chemistry and micro EDS/XRF equipment is able to localize and map the presence of lead and other potentially toxic materials to help you understand both what the accurate results are and what part of your manufacturing process are associated with them.

Our compliance testing abilities include, but are certainly not limited to the following:

  • Lead Paint: 16 CFR Part 1303
  • Lead in Children’s Metal Jewelry
  • Lead in Children’s Metal Products
  • Lead in Non-Metal Children’s Products
