Amazon Children's Product Certification - US Site CPC

The Amazon US site requires all toys and products intended for children aged 12 and under to provide a Children's Product Certificate (CPC) for sale. Despite being called a "certificate," the CPC is not issued by any official entity. Instead, it is a self-drafted and fully responsible "certificate" created by the manufacturer/importer, declaring that their product complies with all applicable US local regulations related to children's product safety and other laws.

CPC Certification Requirements:

  1. The CPC certificate must be based on testing results from a CPSC-approved third-party testing laboratory.
  2. The CPC certificate is issued by the seller, and third-party laboratories can assist in drafting the CPC certificate.
  3. Children's products must comply with all relevant safety rules and provisions.

In summary, all Amazon toys require CPC certification. CPC certification serves as a safety certificate for products intended for children aged 12 and under.

CPC Certificate Contents:

  1. Product identification information covered by this certificate.
  2. Each CPSC children's product safety regulation referenced by the certified product.
  3. Information about the US importer or manufacturer company requiring certification.
  4. Contact information for the person maintaining testing data.
  5. Production date and address of the product.
  6. Date and address of compliance testing for consumer product safety regulations.
  7. CPSC-approved third-party laboratory conducting the required compliance testing for certification.
