QUESTION: what are the lead content restrictions regarding jewelry and children's toys in USA? 23 Oct 2008 Illinois, USA

Within the United States, what are the lead content restrictions regarding decorative ornaments and adult jewelry?

Is there a source to find a list of consumer products and lead restrictions (e.g. children's toys, candles, etc.) that apply for products sold within the USA?

Many Thanks

Dear Rick

We apologise for the delay in response to your question. We just did not have enough staff to answer all the e-mails we get. Regarding the lead content restrictions for jewellery, you might find this link useful: 

Guide to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, (CPSIA) for Small Businesses, Resellers, Crafters and Charities

As regards to children products, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act sets new limits on lead content in any children’s product as defined in the Act, this is effective on February 10, 2009. Here is the link for the CPSIA:
