New Enrollment & URN Registration

Register to sell stuffed articles of bedding, furniture, toys and quilted clothing in the U.S.

Get compliant in the United States as a manufacturer or importer of stuffed articles. Registering will allow you to legally ship and/or sell your products in the U.S.

Get started with registration

The first step to registering is to create an account with Global Registration Services. You can then submit information that will allow you to acquire a URN, design and print a law label, and begin selling your fully compliant stuffed articles.

What is a URN?

If you are selling bedding, furniture, toys or quilted clothing in the United States, those products are legally required to have a Uniform Registry Number (URN) printed on the law label.

A URN is a unique ID identifier for the physical factory location that manufactures the final product. The URN traces the product back to the site where it was physically manufactured.

To obtain a URN, the factory — or a representative acting on its behalf, such as an importer — must first apply for a URN in one of the regulatory agencies that regulates the items they produce. Once a URN is received, it must be registered in the remaining agencies that regulate those products to be properly recognized.

Each factory / manufacturing site needs to register for its own URN.
If a product is stuffed or filled, it needs a URN on its law label.
The Federal Trade Commission’s Registered Identification Number is not a URN.

How long does getting a URN take?

You may be able to get a URN in as little as: 

  • 3-10 business days  for bedding and furniture
  • 7-10 business days for quilted clothing permit
  • 14-16 business days for stuffed toys

Our registration timeline offers insight into the registration process, what information you will need to provide, and when you can legally begin selling your products.

Registration for quilted clothing

Unlike other stuffed products, quilted clothing does not use a URN. Instead, quilted clothing uses a Registration Number (RN) and/or Wool Products Label (WPL) number. 

Although GRS cannot help you apply for an RN/WPL, we can use your existing RN/WPL to apply for a Quilted Clothing permit. Please check with your retailer, as some retailers like Macy’s and Gap Inc. provide their suppliers with an RN/WPL.

Law label services

Law labels are the tags that read “Do Not Remove Under Penalty of Law” on stuffed products. In addition to registering across the states, a compliant law label is also required to meet state regulatory requirements.

Global Registration Services offers law label services, including full-service, in-house label design and printing through our sister company, American Law Label, Inc. We can even ensure your law label is compliant with Canadian federal labeling requirements.
