Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act: One-Year Update

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., September 14, 2009

On August 14, 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (“CPSIA”) promised to revitalize a sleepy Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC").  Just over one year later, a reawakened CPSC is charging forward to implement its authority, which includes several provisions that just recently took effect.  The CPSC has a full complement of Commissioners, a full plate of rulemaking activities, and a full arsenal of enforcement powers.  Its new chairman, Inez Tenenbaum, testified about these changes at a recent Congressional oversight hearing.  The regulated community needs to keep up to date on these developments at the CPSC and to prepare for more changes and regulations on the horizon.
