Release Details

Manufacturers or importers may be permitted to bring violative goods into conformity with flammability standards: otherwise, the products that fail to pass flammability tests must be destroyed.

According to the policy published in the September 30, 1975, Federal Register, clothing, products and fabrics intended for export at the time of original manufacture or imported with the sole intent of subsequent export are exempted from Flammable Fabrics Act regulations. These items, however, must be labeled or stamped to indicate they are intended for export at the time of original manufacture or importation, and they must, in fact, be exported.

Copies of the policy statement are available from the Product Safety Information Center, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, D.C. 20207. Or call the toll free hotline: 800-638-2772.
