Rhythm Band Instruments takes children’s safety very seriously.
In 2008 President Bush signed into law the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. This new legislation established revised safety standards for products intended for use by children ages 12 and under. An even stricter set of standards has been put into place in the last 18 months and all items sold must meet current guidelines. In particular, lead levels in surface coatings, lead in substrate materials, and Phthalate levels must be under government mandated levels in order to be compliant with the act.
Prior to the 2008 signing of this legislation, Rhythm Band began to test items that we sell for toxic materials, and over the last four years we have established procedures and policy that have led to an ongoing testing program for all products sold. As required by law, Rhythm Band utilizes the services of ASTM certified testing laboratories to carry out these tests.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our testing policy and procedures please feel free to contact us.
