Lead Jewelry Regs May Be Delayed

Amendments to 105 CMR 650 regulating the sale of toy jewelry were to become effective June 13, 2008, but there has been some concern over the ability of companies to comply with the requirement of two different types of lead testing. According to today's Boston Globe, implementation may be delayed three months to provide additional time for the new testing, believed to be the "strictest in the nation." More information on this issue is available at Mass. Law About Lead Poisoning and Control.
