How to Complete a CPSC Certificate

All vendors producing goods that are covered by a CPSC-enforced regulation must complete a General Certificate of Conformity (GCC) and/or Children’s Product Certificate (CPC) prior to the PO being shipped. Certificate templates are available on www.urbnvendor.com. All certificates and supporting test reports must be completed in English.

These certificates should accompany the shipments of the goods and must be made available to URBN within 24 hours of request.
