CPSIA Reasonable Testing Program
Illini maintains compliance with rules and regulations set forth by the CPSIA and follows CPSC protocol to determine if an item is a children’s product. Illini also considers the potential for childlike appeal, number of parts, and any other factors which may lead to the child receiving the product. If the current or potential item is considered a toy, child’s product, or child care article, the item is tested by an approved third party lab for CPSIA compliance. Permanent and distinguishing marks, known as a tracking number, are placed on regulated items marketed to children 12 and under. Children’s Product Certificates are available for regulated items and can be furnished upon request or found on the Illini website.
Frequency: CPSIA testing is conducted every 12 months if the stock is rotated frequently and the materials do not change. If there is a material change within this timeframe, then third party testing is performed. If inventory life exceeds 12 months, Illini conducts third party testing upon the next inventory purchase order.
FDA Testing Program
Illini follows FDA testing protocols for all applicable products. We work closely with third party testing facilities to determine and conduct necessary testing. Our catalog contains select brand-name products from reputable suppliers & manufacturers. In certain cases such as these, we rely upon the supplier to complete the necessary FDA testing and provide us with comprehensive Certificates of Conformity verifying that these items have been tested accordingly and are FDA compliant.
Frequency: FDA testing is conducted and updated every 12 months if the stock is rotated frequently and the materials do not change. If there is a change in materials, FDA testing is conducted upon material change. If inventory life exceeds 12 months, Illini conducts 3rd party testing upon the next inventory purchase order.
California Proposition 65 Testing Program
Illini is educated on not only the regulatory standards, but also the challenges that Proposition 65 poses to our customers. We routinely monitor the extensive and ever-growing list of chemicals recognized by the State of California. Illini evaluates each and every item based on its material composition for potential Prop 65 concerns. Using research on the item’s material composition, laboratory recommendation, & past cases involving that material, we determine which chemicals to test for. Should we test an item for Prop 65 and not receive passing results, we either change the material in order to obtain passing & compliant results, or discontinue the item. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the peace-of-mind to confidently carry our products. To aid this confidence, testing information can be obtained from the product’s GCC’s on the Illini website, or from test reports furnished by the Illini Compliance Team.
Frequency: Prop 65 testing is conducted biennially barring any material changes made to the item within this timeframe. Should a material change occur, the Compliance Team will immediately reevaluate the item for necessary testing. If inventory life exceeds this timeframe, Illini conducts third party testing upon the next inventory purchase order.
Illini is committed to product safety and adherence of international laws and regulations. The compliance team monitors exports of products and will not authorize items deemed unsuitable for international destinations, specifically Canada. As current items become eligible for third party testing, the compliance team reviews for CCPSA/Health Canada testing. Eligibility for CCPSA/Health Canada testing is determined on a per-item basis.
Frequency: It is the goal of the Illini compliance team to follow testing protocols for Canada in equal frequency to our FDA and CPSIA testing. This goal is routinely monitored.
