Consumer Product Safety Oversight: Opportunities Exist to Strengthen Coordination and Increase Efficiencies and Effectiveness
Alicia Puente Cackley (au)
The oversight of consumer product safety is a complex system that evolved over time and involves a number of federal agencies. Further, as globalization and technological advances expand the range of products available in U.S. markets, the challenge of regulating the thousands of product types has become increasingly complex. The Consumer Product Safety Comm. (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Many other federal agencies also have responsibilities related to consumer product safety oversight: the Nat. Highway Traffic Safety Admin. (NHTSA), U.S. Coast Guard, Food and Drug Admin. (FDA), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This report examines (1) which federal agencies oversee consumer product safety and their roles and responsibilities; (2) the extent and effects of any fragmentation or overlap in the oversight of consumer products; and (3) collaboration among agencies to address any negative effects of fragmentation or overlap. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
