ACTION: Notice of Requirements for Accreditation of Third Party Conformity Assessment Bodies to Assess Conformity with part 1303 of Title 16, Code of Federal Regulations. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES AGENCY: Introduction: The Consumer Product Safety Act (‘‘CPSA’’), at § 14(a)(3)(B)(i) as added by § 102(a)(2) of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (‘‘CPSIA’’), Public Law 110–314, directs the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (‘‘CPSC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) to publish this notice of requirements for accreditation of third party conformity assessment bodies (‘‘third party laboratories’’) to test children’s products for conformity with the lead paint ban in the Commission’s regulations at 16 CFR part 1303 (the ‘‘lead paint ban’’). Children’s products are those designed or intended for use primarily by children 12 years old and younger. Part 1303 bans paint and other surface coatings that contain more than 0.06 percent lead as well as toys, other consumer products intended for use by children, and furniture bearing leadcontaining paint.1 Each manufacturer (including the importer) or private labeler of children’s products subject to the lead paint ban must have products manufactured more than 90 days after this notice tested by a laboratory 1 On August 14, 2009, the 0.06 percent (600 ppm) lead limit is reduced to 0.009 percent (90 ppm). CPSIA § 101(a)(2)(B). VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:11 Sep 19, 2008 Jkt 214001 accredited to do so and must issue a certificate of compliance with the lead paint ban based on that testing.2 3 The Commission is also recognizing limited circumstances in which testing performed by a laboratory on or after May 16, 2008, 90 days prior to the date of enactment of CPSIA (August 14, 2008), but prior to Commission acceptance of the laboratory’s preexisting accreditation, provided that accreditation is accepted not later than November 26, 2008, may form the basis for the certificate of compliance with the lead paint ban required of the manufacturer or private labeler. This notice provides the criteria and process for Commission acceptance of accreditation of ‘‘third party’’ laboratories for testing to the lead paint ban (laboratories that are not owned, managed, or controlled by a manufacturer or private labeler of a children’s product to be tested by the laboratory for certification purposes), ‘‘firewalled’’ laboratories (those that are owned, managed, or controlled by a manufacturer or private labeler of a children’s product to be tested by the laboratory for certification purposes and that seek accreditation under the additional statutory criteria for ‘‘firewalled’’ laboratories), and laboratories owned or controlled in whole or in part by a government. The requirements of this notice are effective upon its publication in the Federal Register and are exempted by CPSIA from the notice and comment rulemaking requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553.4 Baseline accreditation of each category of laboratory to the International Organization for Standardization (‘‘ISO’’) Standard ISO/ IEC 17025:2005—General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories—is required. The accreditation must be by an accreditation body that is a signatory to the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation—Mutual Recognition Arrangement (‘‘ILAC– MRA’’) and the scope of the accreditation must include testing for 2 Section 14(a)(2) of the CPSA as added by § 102(a)(2) of CPSIA requires that certification be based on testing of sufficient samples of the product, or samples that are identical in all material respects to the product. 3 Of course, irrespective of certification, the children’s product in question must comply with applicable CPSC requirements. See, e.g., CPSA § 14(h) as added by CPSIA § 102(b). 4 CPSA § 14(a)(3)(G) as added by § 102(a)(2) of CPSIA exempts publication of this notice from the rulemaking requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, and from the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 compliance with the lead paint ban.5 A laboratory owned or controlled by a manufacturer or private labeler of products to be tested by the laboratory is subject to additional requirements intended to assure that the Commission is immediately and confidentially notified of any attempt by the manufacturer, private labeler or other interested party to hide or exert undue influence over the laboratory’s test results. A governmental laboratory may be accredited subject to additional requirements concerning independence of its relationship with the host government and freedom of manufacturers in the host country to elect to use accredited non-government laboratories for certification testing without suffering disadvantage. The Commission has established an electronic accreditation registration and listing system that can be accessed via its Web site. Although the accreditation requirements for testing to the lead paint ban in this notice are effective upon their publication in the Federal Register, the Commission solicits comments on the accreditation procedures as they apply to that testing and on the accreditation approach in general, since the Commission must publish additional testing accreditation procedures over the coming months. DATES: Effective Date: The requirements for accreditation of laboratories for testing to the lead paint ban are effective upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, that is September 22, 2008. Request For Comments: Please provide comments in response to this notice by October 22, 2008. Comments on this notice should be captioned ‘‘Laboratory Accreditation Process for Lead Paint Ban Testing.’’ Comments should be submitted to the Office of the Secretary by e-mail at cpsc-os@cpsc.gov, or mailed or delivered, preferably in five copies, to the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, Maryland 20814. Comments may also be filed by facsimile to (301) 504–0127.
