So that members can ensure their products meet federal, state, and industry standards, MJSA has developed several compliance guides. Each focuses on a specific area of regulation, provides a comprehensive overview, and, in plain English, explains what jewelry makers, designers, and related suppliers need to do to comply.
The guides can viewed by clicking on the links below. Note: They are available only to MJSA members, who will be asked to enter their member IDs and passwords. For assistance, please contact MJSA.
