The CPSIA : One (Difficult) Year Later (Part 2 of 2)

Publisher: Law Journal Newsletters' Product Liability Law & Strategy
February 1, 2010
Day Pitney Author(s) Jonathan I. Handler

Boston partner Jonathan Handler makes the argument that although the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 might have been well intentioned, its implementation has been a logistical nightmare. According to the Boston attorneys, that's because it does not provide the Consumer Product Safety Commission with the resources to enforce the law. Nor does it give sufficient forethought to its implications for affected businesses.

Part one of this article described the background of the CPSIA and some of the developments since its passage. Part two addresses recent activity relating to products such as electronics, bicycles, and ATVs, the challenges imposed by implementation, and the future of the CPSIA.
