CPSC Declines to Stay Tracking Label Requirements


The federal Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (“CPSIA”), which became law last year, imposes a number of new requirements on consumer product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. The focus of this client alert is on the CPSIA’s provisions regarding required tracking labels for all children’s products, effective August 14, 2009, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (“CPSC”) recent consideration, and at least temporary rejection, of a request for emergency one-year stay of enforcement of those requirements. (For additional general information on the CPSIA, please see earlier Product Liability updates.)

Please see full update for more information.
