Textile Development Memo for January 26, 2011

By Chris Skinner, Squire Sanders & Dempsey

On Monday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) initiated a “Soft Launch” of the statutorily mandated Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database (the “Database”).  The Database, which is scheduled to fully launch on March 11, 2011, will house reports from consumers and other Database users about incidents of harm or risk of harm from the use of consumer products.  It will also house responses to reports of harm by manufacturers (including importers) and private labelers of reported products.
