Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is seeking input by Dec. 8 on the proposed extension of an information collection for the publicly available consumer product safety information database. Section 212 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act added section 6A to the Consumer Product Safety Act, which requires the Commission to establish and maintain a publicly available, searchable database on the safety of consumer products and other products or substances regulated by the Commission. Among other things, the CPSC is required to collect reports of harm from the public for potential publication in the publicly available database as well as collect and publish comments about reports of harm from manufacturers.
