CPSIA Regulations

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 establishes new regulations governing safety of consumer products, including items used by teachers and students in schools. All Califone items fall into either the “Consumer” or the “Children’s” product classifications, “Electronic” sub-classification. They are tested to meet the applicable regulations from their respective group.

Please note the following items:
  • No Califone product is classified in the “Children’s Toy” category.
  • We currently do not have any products that are subject to Section 24 of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.
  • Section 108 Phthalates does not apply to our products.

Every tested item requires Califone to issue a GCC, or General Conformity Certificate of compliance. The GCC for each product acts as an umbrella document certifying that all of the required testing has been completed for that product and fulfills the responsibility of Califone to meet CPSIA regulations.

If your district (or school catalog) requires a letter from Califone certifying our compliance with CPSAI regulations, download the accompanying PDF letter.

To view the GCC for any SKU, drill through the desired product category and then select the specific product.”

Throughout the past 40 years, research has shown that there is a strong correlation between oral reading fluency and comprehension. According to Carol Chomsky, well-known researcher and former professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education Reading and Language Department, students’ fluency improved while reading along with audio tapes. Her study on assisted, repeated oral readings, was also expanded upon later, indicating that repeated oral readings gave non-fluent readers methods for capturing the essence of the text, therefore improving comprehension....[more]
