What Is a Certificate of Conformance Template?

A certificate of conformance template is an example of a General Certificate of Conformity. This certificate indicates that general-use products meet safety standards enforced by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Manufacturers and importers of these products must include this certificate in all product shipments.

Manufacturers and importers must complete product testing to ensure products meet federally regulated safety standards prior to issuing a General Certificate of Conformity. Failure to include a paper or electronic copy of the certificate with each shipment may result in civil or criminal penalties. Shipment invoices should include a URL dedicated specifically for electronic copies.
