Congress recently passed an amendment to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act that will ease the burden of compliance with safety regulations (particularly in the areas of lead content, third party testing, phthalates, and tracking labels). This amendment provides the CPSC with greater authority and discretion in enforcing consumer product safety laws. The legislation offers much-needed clarification and relief for some consumer product and toy manufacturers but does not contain the industry-friendly provisions included in prior bills.
