 CPSC Takes Step Forward In Effort to Protect Children
                From Hazardous Metal Jewelry

Commission Approves ANPR, Seeks Public Comment
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission (CPSC) unanimously approved (2-0) an advance 
notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) that could lead to 
a ban of children’s metal jewelry that has more than 0.06 
percent of total lead. An ANPR is the first step in CPSC’s 
three step rulemaking process.

"Lead is toxic to children and reducing lead poisoning in 
children is a priority for CPSC," said Acting Chairman 
Nancy Nord.

Lead can accumulate in the body. Lead poisoning in 
children is associated with behavioral and growth 
problems and learning disabilities.

Since 2004, CPSC has conducted more than a dozen recalls 
of children’s metal jewelry due to the lead poisoning 
risk. These recalls involved more than 165 million units. 

Products intended for children are banned under federal 
law (Federal Hazardous Substances Act) if they contain 
hazardous levels of accessible lead. To help manu-
facturers, distributors, importers and retailers keep 
children’s metal jewelry with hazardous levels of lead 
off store shelves, CPSC announced an interim enforcement 
policy in February 2005, which involves a two-step test-
ing process. That process uses total lead content as a 
screening tool but focuses on accessible lead levels. 
Current rulemaking could result in a simplified approach, 
eliminating the test for accessible lead.

CPSC will continue enforcing the interim metal jewelry 
testing policy while current rulemaking is pending. 
Parents are advised to check CPSC’s Web site for pre-
viously announced recalls of metal jewelry. In addition, 
parents should not allow their children to mouth any 
metal jewelry.

CPSC has a long history of protecting children from lead 
hazards. In addition to this rulemaking on children’s 
metal jewelry, CPSC banned lead in paint in the late 
1970s. The agency spearheaded efforts to remove lead-
containing vinyl mini-blinds from the market and banned 
the sale of metal-cored candle wicks containing lead in 
2003.

The ANPR will be published in the Federal Register in 
the next few weeks. Following publication, the public 
will have 60 days to provide comments to the Commission. 
Comments can be submitted to CPSC’s Office of the 
Secretary at tstevenson@cpsc.gov
