The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a new standard today with regard to testing paint and painted products, such as children’s toys, for lead. The new standard document (CPSC-CH-E1003-09) can be found here. Rules contained in the Ban of Lead-Containing Paint and Certain Consume Products Bearing Lead Containing Paint, CFR, Title 16, Part 1303, remain unchanged.
In short, the new protocol includes a standard for composite testing, as recommended by the Toy Industry Association Working Group. Composite testing, whether composite-testing-like-parts or composite-testing-different-parts involves sampling paint from several different product parts in order to secure a sample size sufficient for lead (pB) testing.
