CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY IMPROVEMENT ACT
MASTER GENERAL CONFORMITY CERTIFICATE / FAQ
On August 14, 2008, the President signed into law the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. On November 11, 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a final ruling regarding the provision of consumer product safety certificates (called General Conformity Certificates) during the initial implementation phase of this Act. Augusta Sportswear® is in full compliance with this law. We have made available to you the General Conformity Certificate and a Frequently Asked Questions form for download. The certificate will cover all products affected by this new law and will be updated as required.
Augusta Sportswear® will always maintain compliance on all levels of the manufacturing process. You can rest assured that we are committed to providing excellence in product quality and customer service and will strive to maintain a high level of corporate responsibility at all times.
