I applaud you for this! We really all need to visit our own legal counsel to find the way in which it affects our own situations. A consultation might set you back a couple hundred dollars but at least you would know your responsibilities as a seller. Each business is different so you can't rely on what someone else's attorney has advised them of.
I am having a couple of main products tested (very basically for lead) so at least I can say come Feb. 10 that I have implemented a reasonable testing schedule and I can have the General Conformity Certificates. Third party testing? Too expensive for a bowmaker. Or a WAHM jewelry maker. Or a OOAK kids clothing maker. Unfortunately...
Perhaps this will change!
