FAQs

What is a URN?

If you are selling stuffed articles of bedding, furniture or toys 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 another party acting on its behalf, such as an importer — must first apply for a bedding/furniture license in one of the 14 U.S. states that regulate stuffed articles. Once registered in a single state, your new URN will need to be registered in all other states in order to be 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 registration take?

You may be able to get a URN in as little as 5-10 business days. 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.

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.
