The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act ( CPSIA) places extensive regulatory burdens on all businesses involved in the manufacture, importation, distribution or sale of consumer products in the United States. Failure to properly comply with these obligations may expose a company to significant penalties, as well as product recalls and other costly business interruptions.
The Joern Law Firm assists clients in this area by providing businesses with a risk assessment program that:
- Identifies business operations and consumer products that are at risk of non-compliance with the CPSIA;
- Evaluates the likelihood of specific violations and the harm any compliance violations would cause the company;
- Prioritizes risks in terms of severity and helps to focus the company’s efforts so as to protect against the most significant risks first.
