September is Baby Safety Month, sponsored annually by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This year, JPMA is helping educate parents and caregivers on the importance of buying products that are JPMA Certified.
Buying JPMA Certified products means that product went through an extra set of rigorous testing. Once a product passes laboratory testing, it is then marked with the distinctive JPMA Certification Seal –ensuring consumers that the product was built with the highest safety standards in mind. The JPMA Certified Seal on a product’s packaging provides parents and caregivers with added assurance that the product exceeds the traditional standards of quality, safety, and functionality.
For more than 30 years, JPMA’s Certification Program has helped guide consumers toward smarter, safer juvenile product purchases. Currently, more than 2,000 products are JPMA Certified in 20 categories!
The JPMA Certification Program, established by JPMA, consists of voluntary standards developed by ASTM International. Manufacturers, retailers, other industry members, consumer groups and staff from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are involved in the development of the standards.
JPMA is proud to provide a certification program that demands only the best. That’s why JPMA urges all parents to look for the JPMA Certification Seal on products and packages when shopping for baby.
