Further, section 14(i)(2) requires continued testing of children’s products, directing the Commission to, by regulation, establish protocols and standards— (i) For ensuring that a children’s product tested for compliance with an applicable children’s product safety rule is subject to testing periodically and when there has been a material change in the product design or manufacturing process, including the sourcing of component parts; (ii) For the testing of representative samples to ensure continued compliance; (iii) For verifying that a children’s product tested by a conformity assessment body complies with applicable children’s product safety rules; and (iv) For safeguarding against the undue influence on a third party conformity assessment body by a manufacturer or private labeler. The Commission has been working to adopt a testing and certification rule that sets forth the continued testing requirements mandated by section 14(i).
