Testing your way into obliteration thanks to CPSIA

I came across this good article in Arizona Republic (via overlawyered.com ) on the difficulties besetting small domestic manufacturers due to CPSIA compliance.

  • Bumkin, a Scottsdale diaper maker, reports that it spends about 1000 USD for testing each batch of garment it buys and testing costs now contribute 25% of the product cost!
  • Boon Inc, A Chandler toy maker that has spent $400,000 on compliance efforts with no end in sight since the act was passed two year years ago.
