Amazon Children's Product Certification - Canada Site CCPSA

In order to ensure the safety of children's toys, Canada has established the Canadian Crib Standard (CCPSA). All toys intended for children aged 12 and under must comply with the CCPSA regulations.

The CCPSA standards primarily focus on the safety of children's toys, covering three aspects: physical safety, chemical safety, and biological safety.

Among them, in terms of physical safety, toys are required to be free from sharp edges, sharp points, burrs, etc., to prevent injuries to children. In terms of chemical safety, toys must be non-toxic, non-hazardous, and free from irritating odors to safeguard the health of children. In terms of biological safety, toys must be free from harmful insects, bacteria, viruses, etc., to ensure the health and hygiene of children.

How to obtain CCPSA certification:

  1. Select a recognized third-party organization for the CCPSA certification assessment. The Canadian federal government has recognized several laboratories and certification bodies with the qualifications to test and license infant and children's toys. By collaborating with these organizations, you can obtain due diligence reports on product safety to ensure your toys comply with CCPSA certification standards.
  2. Provide necessary documents and labels for the product. Before selling products in Canada, you need to prepare various supporting documents, such as test reports and product manuals. Additionally, ensure that the product is labeled with the correct warning signs and age range for children.
  3. Conduct regular monitoring of the product and update CCPSA certification. As products may encounter issues over time or new regulations and standards may be introduced, it is essential to stay in close contact with the certification body to promptly receive the latest requirements and relevant information.
