Small Batch Manufacturer's Registry Information

Use this registry to identify yourself as a Small Batch Manufacturer. By registering, you get relief from certain third-party testing requirements. To register as a Small Batch Manufacturer, you must satisfy the following two criteria:

  1. Your total gross revenue from the previous calendar year from the sales of all consumer products of each entity you control, are controlled by, or are under common control with, is
    Note that the Consumer Product Safety Act provides for this figure to adjust annually by the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor. See 15 U.S.C. § 2063(i)(3)(E)(ii). This figure will be adjusted upwards in early 2014 based on figures to be provided by the Department of Labor. The size of the adjustment is still unknown, but if your company’s revenues are currently $900,000 or more, we recommend that you defer registering with the CPSC until the new figures are released. If you register before the release and your revenues exceed the maximum allowed amount as adjusted in 2014, you must notify the CPSC to cancel your registration or potentially face penalties.

You understand that your registration is only effective for those products where no more than 7,500 units of the same product were manufactured in the previous calendar year.

You must register as a Small Batch Manufacturer every year to qualify for this testing relief.
