CPSC Will Hold Web Conferences on the Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On January 7, 2011, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that it will hold two live web conferences on the publicly available consumer product safety information database. During the first web conference, scheduled for January 11, 2011, CPSC will demonstrate key functions of the database, such as how a consumer will be able to use the new online reporting form to submit a report of harm related to the use of a consumer product and how users can search for reports of harm and information about recalled products. The second web conference, scheduled for January 20, 2011, will include a business-focused demonstration of how business users can register an account on the Business Portal. The Business Portal is intended to facilitate more efficient electronic notice, review, and comment on reports of harm before they are published in the database. CPSC states that manufacturers (including importers) and private labelers will be able to register an account on the Business Portal at this demonstration. Registration for the web conferences is available online.
