Is there a difference between the labeling of children's and adult apparel and footwear items? 

Generally, the U.S. applies the same labeling requirements for both adults and children, but there are some additional requirements for children’s products.  

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, children’s items are subject to children’s product safety rules. Children’s items are defined as any consumer product designed or intended for children 12 or younger. To abide by these rules, importers and manufacturers must provide a Children’s Product Certificate (CPC) to confirm that the children’s apparel or footwear complies with labeling requirements, among other standards. For example, meeting restrictions on lead, flammability, small parts, and sharp objects.
