Comments on Implementation of a Searchable Consumer Product
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) appreciates this opportunity to provide comments on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CSPC) plan to establish and maintain a searchable consumer product safety incident database. RILA does not plan to speak at the public hearing on November 10, and we hope the CPSC will take these written views into account. RILA understands that the CPSC is also creating a contact list of parties interested in issues related to the public database. RILA would also like to be included on that contact list to be updated on any new developments related to the public database. RILA members support transparency in product safety, and believe that a public database that is populated with timely, true and accurate product safety information can help to further consumer awareness and protection.
