The Consumer Products Safety Commission has released a new age grading guidance. This session is a must for manufacturers, sellers and importers of toys. The new guidance makes some age group changes to existing toys, adds a number of toys to the guidelines and makes some qualitative statements to existing toys. Anne Stone and Sue DeRagon walk attendees through the most recent changes and offer some best practices. This session will qualify as an elective for the Product Safety Awareness initiative.
