State Regulations

State and local jurisdictions often work to pass legislation that directly corresponds with issues in that state or region. The motivation for local action is often prompted by an incident, environmental change or lack of Federal guidance. JPMA tracks these issues and works with all stakeholders to address the necessity of state regulations and the establishment of sound public policy.

Each year, JPMA takes action on more than 100 key bills in dozens of states that could impact the juvenile products industry. 

Some of the ongoing issues that JPMA remains actively engaged in are:

  • Chemical regulations
  • Labeling requirements
  • Manufacturer reporting requirements of potentially hazardous substances
  • Third party testing burden reduction
  • Implementation of CPSIA 104 Rules

When new legislation or regulations are introduced or changes to existing laws or regulations are proposed, the “public” which includes all stakeholders on the subject including business, consumer advocates and individual consumers are encouraged to share their perspective, opinions, data and incidents if available on the particular issue. This part of the legal and regulatory process is known as filing public comments. JPMA takes the opportunity to make its position known and works to ensure sound public policy by weighing in on the issues that impact the juvenile industry.  

For more information on what states are considering, please contact JPMA Managing Director, Lisa Trofe (ltrofe@jpma.org)
