Consumer Products

As a business that makes, imports or distributes consumer products, you have a variety of Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and other Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulations to follow. Steps are provided to help guide you through the process of complying with federal government safety regulations along with information on specific Business/Product Guidance. (21)

Are you a small business starting out and manufacturing a product for children or other consumers? The CPSC has designed their Regulatory Robot to guide you through their requirements to identify important product safety requirements that you should review before manufacturing or importing your consumer product.
