Details

Growing numbers of consumer product recalls in 2007 and 2008, particularly of toys and other children’s products, focused increased attention on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). As globalization and technological advances expand the range of products on the market, the challenge of overseeing and regulating the thousands of product types becomes all the more complex. This book evaluates the authority and ability of the CPSC to stay informed about new risks associated with consumer products and its ability to identify product hazards, with a focus on voluntary standards and product identification.
