CPSC in the United States releases and implements the eFiling program for compliance certificates

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the United States has issued a supplemental notice (SNPR) proposing rulemaking to revise the 16 CFR 1110 compliance certificate. SNPR suggests aligning the certificate rules with other CPSCs regarding testing and certification, and suggests that CPSCs collaborate with the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to simplify the process of submitting Consumer Product Compliance Certificates (CPC/GCC) through electronic filing (eFiling).

The Consumer Product Compliance Certificate is an important document for verifying that a product meets safety standards and needs to enter the US market with the goods. The core of the eFiling program is to simplify the process of submitting consumer product compliance certificates and collect compliance data more efficiently, accurately, and timely through digital tools. CPSC can better assess consumer product risks and quickly identify non compliant products through eFiling, which not only helps to intercept non compliant products in advance at ports, but also accelerates the smooth entry of compliant products into the market.

To improve the eFiling system, CPSC has invited some importers to conduct eFiling Beta testing. Importers invited to participate in Beta testing can submit product compliance certificates electronically through CBP’s Electronic Commerce Environment (ACE). CPSC is actively developing an electronic filing (eFiling) program and finalizing the plan. Importers participating in the testing are currently testing the system and preparing to fully launch it. eFiling is expected to be officially implemented in 2025, making it a mandatory requirement.

When filing CPSC electronic records (eFiling), importers should provide at least seven aspects of data information:

1. Finished product identification (can refer to the GTIN entry data of the global trade project code);

2. Safety regulations for each certified consumer product;

3. The production date of the finished product;

4. The manufacturing, production, or assembly location of the finished product, including the name, complete address, and contact information of the manufacturer;

5. The date on which the last test of the finished product met the above consumer product safety regulations;

6. The testing laboratory information on which the certificate depends, including the name, complete address, and contact information of the testing laboratory;

7. Maintain test results and record personal contact information, including name, complete address, and contact information.
