Audit Certifies DIGISPEC Proposition 65 and CPSIA Compliant
In the ever-changing regulatory environment in which business is done, product safety is top-of-mind in the promotional products industry. Las Vegas-based DIGISPEC, and its sister companies CounterPoint and Visstun, announced the companies have successfully completed third-party audits of their products and practices, which conform to applicable Prop. 65 and CPSIA safety standards.
The tests were conducted by Enfield, Connecticut-based Specialized Technology Resources Inc. (STR), a leading independent testing and accreditation agency that provides audit services to 140 countries around the world.
All product configurations of the entire DIGISPEC and CounterPoint lines were tested for heavy metal content, lead in accessible substrate materials, flammability of solids and Natural Environment Research Counceil (NERC) toxins in packaging. All were found to be compliant with applicable Proposition 65 (lead and cadmium) and CPSIA child safety standards and regulations.
All Visstun products—including plastic and paper cups as well as color-changing ink and glow ink—were also found to be compliant. The line was tested for aesthetics, leakage and contamination, capacity, ink/coating adhesion, heavy metal content, FDA extraction, phthalates and microbiological contamination.
“With all the recent concerns over product safety, especially for children, we have been proactive and are taking all precautions to meet Prop. 65 and CPSIA guidelines,” said Ed Hamilton, DIGISPEC president. “We want to make sure we provide all necessary information to distributors so they are confident that the products they purchase from us are safe and compliant.”
