Retailers face new challenges in certification of their products to CPSC regulations. Among other things, the new proposed CPSC rule would place the certification burden on private labelers and require that importers of regulated finished products manufactured outside of the United States file the required certificate electronically with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the time of filing the CBP entry or at the time of filing the entry and entry summary, if both are filed together. In one of the most significant changes, the CPSC proposes to impose a certification requirement on common carriers, freight forwarders, and third party logistics providers that assume the role of “importer of record” for direct to consumer shipments from foreign manufacturers.
