What is JPMA Certification Program

The JPMA Certification Program is a voluntary program that manufacturers can choose to join to easily and efficiently fulfill all necessary testing requirements for juvenile products sold in the United States.  Each of the JPMA Certification Programs is foundationally built on an ASTM Standard with federal and state requirements layered on, as well as many of the major retailer requirements.  This turn-key solution not only ensures that participating manufacturers are meeting all testing requirements, but it is also cost-effective, thanks to the deeply discounted testing fees that JPMA has negotiated with our independent, third-party testing labs. ASTM standards are not only the foundation of the JPMA Certification 2.0 Program but also of the federal requirements pertaining to juvenile products, known as Section 104 Rules.
