Does the CPSC regulate childrens drugs and do they need to be certified to the new CPSIA standards?
CPSC does not regulate childrens drugs and their accompanying dosing devices such as dosing cups or separate dosing droppers. These products are excluded from the definition of “consumer product” under the Consumer Product Safety Act. However, the CPSC regulates the child-resistant packaging for certain drugs as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). If any drug, for children or adults, is required by a CPSC regulation to be in child-resistant packaging, the importer or the domestic party that packages the childrens drug must issue a certificate of conformity with the special packaging requirements of the PPPA.
