CPSIA Statement From Gemline

22 Jun

100% Recycled Impulse Lunch Cooler, one of over 70 Gemline items with CPSIA Certification

We had a short meeting at the office with Cliff Jordan from Gemline today. Lots of great information, and one of the things that really impressed me was the fact that Gemline now has over 70 items that meet the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations. Over 70.

What does Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act mean?

From the CPSC website “The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children. The CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals – contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.”

So what it means to our industry is that Gemline – by complying with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act – is helping us deliver child safe promotional items to our clients. And the CPSIA Certification can be tracked on every CPSIA compliant Gemline item directly from the Gemline website at http://www.gemline.com/Gemline/aboutus/cpsia-cert.aspx?id=101

Sometimes CPSIA Certification could be better; we all remember the much-publicized McDonald’s recall of 12 million “Shrek”-themed drinking glasses. But in the main these regulations are helping the industry develop safer products.

Just ask Gemline. Or better yet go to the Gemline compliance site and see for yourself.
