Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association

Definition from BabyGearLab's Dictionary of Terms

From the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association website:

Since its inception in 1976, the JPMA Certification Program continues to grow and play an important role in the juvenile products industry. Currently, more than 2,000 products are JPMA Certified in 20 categories!

ASTM International (formerly The American Society for Testing & Materials) develops and publishes the standards. JPMA 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.

The JPMA Certification Seal on a product tells consumers this product has been verified as conforming to the requirements established by ASTM, through independent laboratory testing and follow-up on-site inspection of the manufacturer's production line. The manufacturers that participate in the JPMA Certification Program are held to high standards and are obligated to meet those principles with every product.
