Inks have the following certifications
Oeko-Tex(R) Standard 100 Class I
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for the product covers only the properties of finished products or semi-finished products (eg. accessories, materials, threads, dyes) related to health and safety of consumers. It was created at the initiative of Österreichische Textil-Forschungsinstitut (ÖTI) and Forschungsinstitut Hohenstein. These organizations established and manage criteria for the certification.
Clothing with this designation can not contain certain substances harmful to the health of consumers, including substances prohibited by law and the chemical compounds of known harmful effect. The content of many of the harmful substances such as chromium, nickel, lead, formaldehyde, and certain pesticides, but is permitted limited. Product Testing for the presence of harmful substances in the framework of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is adapted to the purposes of the article (eg. tests of children's clothes are more stringent than the test fabrics for domestic use).
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
The CPSIA defines the term “children’s product” and generally requires that children’s products:
- Comply with all applicable children’s product safety rules;
- Be tested for compliance by a CPSC-accepted accredited laboratory, unless subject to an exception;
- Have a written Children’s Product Certificate that provides evidence of the product’s compliance; and
- Have permanent tracking information affixed to the product and its packaging where practicable.
The CPSIA also requires domestic manufacturers or importers of non-children’s products to issue a General Certificate of Conformity (GCC). These GCC’s apply to products subject to a consumer product safety rule or any similar CPSC rule, ban, standard or regulation enforced by the Commission.
Finally, the CPSIA lists special requirements in Section 104 for certain durable infant and toddler products, including cribs.
