The CPISA - Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act is a bill which was past in the United States and is starting to come into effect. It has huge ramifications for small handcrafters of childrens items like myself. I don't have a clear comprehension of the whole thing, and I have been searching for an article or blog I could share with you to help you understand. Today I finally found one. A commentary on by Walter Olson.

This bill has highly upset the Etsy community. Many shops are closing down because they simply cannot afford to comply with the act. Some say they won't get caught and are staying open. I am still deciding what to do. I've considered stopping shipping to the USA even though they are the majority of my customers.
