Executive SummaryMembers of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores can access for free an online platform that allows for exchange of certificates of conformity with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. The trade group and RollStream, a McLean, Va.-based software provider, announced Nov. 17 the launch of the Certificate Exchange Network. The platform allows retailers "to enter one site to obtain certificates for a large portion of the products they sell," an NACDS spokeswoman said in an e-mail. Manufacturers that already set up their own systems can link to certificates through the NACDS network, a RollStream spokeswoman said. Industry stakeholders recommended electronic certificates to comply with CPSIA, which the Consumer Product Safety Commission will enforce for packaging for iron-containing vitamins and other OTCs beginning Feb. 10, 2010 (1"The Tan Sheet" Oct. 12, 2009)
