As a CPSC certified 3rd party testing laboratory, we test all toys & games according to CPSIA regulation to ensure your product is in compliance with all safety requirements. It is hard knowing how to be compliant with all the regulations out there, which is why our service is top notch. We work with our customers to give them the full rundown of what testing they need.
The key to having a compliant product is to go through testing procedures which are simulated like a child at play. In the lab, we then determine if there are any hazards that present themselves.
For general knowledge, toys and games are considered to be any product designed or manufactured to have play value and to be used by children under the age of 14.
Products considered to be toys and games are board games, cars, stuffed animals, water guns, kites, pool toys, wooden blocks, stackable, etc…
The CPSC requires these products to be tested to meet safety requirements for mechanical hazards, chemical properties, and flammability. AM Testing has the solutions for getting your product safe and on the shelves.
