Product Safety

An unsafe product in the marketplace can be a calamity for all involved. Not only can someone be injured, but your brand can be negatively impacted by bad press and/or government recall action. 

The ID College program makes things easier by pre-qualifying every product for safety and compliance before we show them to you. We do the due-diligence beforehand so you don’t have to worry about using a dangerous product to promote your brand.

Understanding the Regulations

These days there are a myriad of state and federal safety laws that must be followed that depend on the product type. These standards include both physical safety, like sharp edges, to chemical safety to keep toxins like lead out. There are also additional requirements for items like electronics and children’s items.

ID Me works with professional laboratories to ensure all necessary testing and inspections are performed on products before we add them to the program. With the help of these experts we stay on top of all legislation and ensure that your brand does decorate a product that may be in non-compliance. This includes legislation like:

• Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
• California Proposition 65
• Illinois Lead Poisoning Prevention Act
• Food Safety and Children Safety regulations

The General Conformity Certificate (GCC)

The GCC is a key document that was mandated by the CPSIA in 2008. It is the primary way that product safety information is communicated across the supply chain, all the way from the factory to the end-consumer. ID Me ensures that every product part of the program has an up-to-date GCC and that all required testing was completed recently. We can also make these GCC’s available for any product upon request.

Please let us know if you’d like more information on how the ID Me College program qualifies each product offered for safety and compliance.
