House Bill HR 4040 Affects to Book Printing Services Factory
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 2/16/2011  Keywords: eco friendly book printing

On August 14, 2008, American president signed House Bill HR 4040, in purpose of strengthening the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the restrictions on certain Phthalates, Lead and requires mandatory testing and tracing labeling. This will be critical for eco friendly book printing services company to understand in moving forward with manufacturing.

Below several points which should be paid more attention.

1. The voluntary safety standards in toy industry -- ASTM, will become MANDATORY for the products aimed at children under the age of 12 years from Feb 2009.

2. The allowable levels of lead CONTENT (not paint) in a product will be set at 600 ppm within 180 days, 300 ppm after one year and 100ppm after 3 years.

3. The allowable levels of lead in paint will be reduced from 600 ppm to 90 ppm. 

4. Testing of children's products by an accredited testing agency will become mandatory.

5. Specific TRACING labeling requirements will be developed within one year.

6. The act prohibits the sale of children's toys or child care products that contain over 0.1% of three phthalates - DEHP [Di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate  - DBP (Dibutyl phthalate) - BBP (benzyl butyl phthalate).

7. The act TEMPORARILY prohibits the sale of products small enough to be put into a child's mouth that contain the following three phthalates - DINP (diisononyl phthalate) - DIDP (diisodecyl phthalate) - DnOP (di-n-octyl phthalate).  This will be temporary on these and other phthalates pending review by the Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel.

For most book printing supplier, they should pay much more attention to product safety, especially the products for children under the age of 12 years.
