What Every Manufacturer Needs to Know (and Think About)June 6, 2011
In 2008, Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA). Section 212 of the CPSIA amended the Consumer Product Safety Act and required the Consumer Product Safety Commission to establish and maintain a searchable product safety information database that was available to the public. That Database went “live” on March 11, 2011. Product manufacturers and labelers must be intimately familiar with the CPSC Database and take steps to make sure that they are prepared to respond to reports of harm that are submitted to the CPSC for inclusion in the Database.
