The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently took an important step towards mandatory electronic filing of data for imported consumer products. On August 12, 2015, the commission approved an “Alpha Pilot” program designed to test an e-filing system for CPSC import data. The program will be conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and has two essential goals:
1. Enhance the CPSC’s capacity to collect and analyze data in order to better target noncompliant products at import; and
2. Develop the means for importers to electronically file CPSC data through a “single window” in the CBP’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) data system.
