Featured Certification

The Federal Trade Commission requires a product advertised as 'Made in USA' be "all or virtually all" made in the U.S. U.S. content must be disclosed on automobiles and textile, wool, and fur products. There’s no law that requires most other products sold in the U.S. to be marked or labeled 'Made in USA' or have any other disclosure about their amount of U.S. content. However, manufacturers and marketers who choose to make claims about the amount of U.S. content in their products must comply with the FTC’s 'Made in USA' policy. Note: Products made in sweatshops in the American territory of Saipan are allowed to carry this label.
