Manufacturers of stuffed bedding and furniture may be able to register and obtain a URN in as little as 5-10 business days.
Once your Uniform Registry Number (URN) has been filed with the states, you can legally start shipping and selling stuffed products in the United States. You do not need to wait to physically receive those licenses.
Here is how to get started so you can start selling your products as soon as possible.
The first step toward registration is to create an account with Global Registration Services. In a matter of minutes, you will be able to generate a custom quote for full U.S. registration as a Manufacturer, Importer or Distributor.
Once you have created your account and paid your quote, the New Registration team at GRS will complete your application paperwork and email it to you for signature.
Sometimes this requires you to communicate with factories overseas to obtain signatures from their owner/officer. The timeline for this step depends on how quickly all applications are signed.
Once you have obtained all of the required signatures, you will send the signed application forms to GRS. If your product is a stuffed toy, you will also send GRS a test sample.
At this time, you should also start thinking about your product’s law label. Every stuffed article requires a law label. If you do not already have one, our sister company American Law Label can design and print a law label for you. And if you already have a law label, we can provide a professional review to ensure that it will prevent violations.

With your signed application forms, Global Registration Services will prepare your registration packets and mail them to each state on your behalf. The time it takes to review and approve your application varies depending on each state’s current processing time:
When your application is approved and your license is issued, it will be mailed directly to the license holder at the address provided on your application.
If you selected to enroll in our License Management or Guaranteed Compliance subscriptions for post-registration renewal service, the licenses will instead be sent to GRS. We will upload them to your account for 24/7 online access.
If you need a URN faster, GRS offers a RUSH URN service. In some cases, we can get your new URN within several business days.
Please note that even without RUSH URN services, registration is a fairly quick process. A URN can generally be obtained in 5-10 business days. Once your URN has been filed with the states, you can legally start shipping and selling stuffed articles of bedding, furniture and toys in the United States. You do not need to wait to physically receive those licenses.
