Consumer Product SafetyGetting In Line
Manufacturers, distributors, importers, and retailers face the challenge of tracking a constantly evolving regulatory framework, not just at a federal level, but also in response to the many new requirements imposed by state and local governments. Kilpatrick Townsend’s attorneys possess strong experience regarding compliance with regulations set and enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) and other agencies. We have helped recall a diverse range of products, including toys, smart phones, thermostats, garments, space heaters, pacifiers, and cigarette lighters.
We regularly advise clients at all levels of the supply chain regarding product recalls and related product warnings and litigation issues on a number of safety regulations imposed by the CSPC, including small parts requirements and other toy regulations under the Hazardous Substances Act, as well as the Flammable Fabrics Act.
Our attorneys draw upon their deep regulatory experience to assist companies with developing policies, procedures, and programs to monitor quality control and safety issues and help ensure compliance with CSPC requirements.
