So I got bored....

and decided to email a bunch of USA/Canada Alva resellers and ask if anyone could show me their testing results (like Kawaii has) or the certification that they are CPSIA compliant... not a single one has answered me back.

Any big company I've ever emailed takes a few days or couple weeks to write me back. Maybe similar for you?

Maybe it will take them a while to answer you.

Re: So I got bored....

I'm curious to hear the response!
You should be able to ask any manufacturer OR reseller for a GCC (General Certificate of Conformity) for each and every print and style. Also, if the product has snaps or PUL, it must be tested for lead, pthalates, and flammability.

So, for example, you could send an email saying, "Hi. I would like the GCC for your overnight pocket diaper in the blue owl print."

They should be able to provide either the SGS test results or a GCC that clearly shows the lead/pthalate/flammability testing for 1) Blue owl PUL fabric 2) white microfleece inner fabric 3) snaps 4) elastic.

(And not just a one-page SGS test report for *white* PUL and fleece.)

I'm pretty sure at this point they are not going to get back to me, so I'm going to wait a month or so and then I will ask just that from a different email address thanks!!!

I will be shocked if they respond. But I'm definitely curious to hear what they have to say!

Re: So I got bored....

Does anyone know if businesses are actually required to show these proofs if requested?
