CPSC's Plan for International Coordination on Toy Safety Requirements
by GSI Staff May 27, 2011
The newly released U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) report Toy Safety Regulatory and Standards Coordination and Alignment – a Roadmap, addresses the following issues:
1) coordination on present and future toy safety regulatory and voluntary standards work;
2) the CPSC’s role in efforts to better align existing toy safety requirements in various international jurisdictions;
3) how elements of the plan may be applied to international coordination on product safety policy for other products; and
4) estimates of resource requirements for such a plan for fiscal years 2011 and 2012.
More information is available from the U.S. CPSC on its International Activities page.
