Under the Consumer Product Safety Act, manufacturers, retailers and importers are required to report certain product safety information to CPSC.  What guidance and tools exist to assist industry in identifying reportable safety issues at the earliest possible moment to avoid late reporting and exposing consumers to an avoidable risk?

Through this panel of industry representatives and a practicing attorney we will discuss the following: 1) Development of a comprehensive internal compliance program to identify risks/defects before they can do harm to your customer; 2) Use of available systems to assist you in identifying risks/defects; and 3) Understanding what data to collect and review to assist in making appropriate determinations and when to actually report information to CPSC.

This panel consists of experienced product safety professionals, who also have one common element among them - they (and the moderator) all previously worked at CPSC - so with this panel you get both the industry perspective as well as insights from the panelists based upon their experiences at CPSC on what you might expect from the regulatory agency responsible for product safety.
