Comments on Proposal for User Fees on Imported Products

On behalf of the trade associations below representing importers, manufacturers, retailers, customs brokers, logistics providers, wholesalers-distributors and others, we are writing to express concern with regards to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) proposal for a new user fee on imported products to pay for the national expansion of the Risk Assessment Methodology (RAM) program. While we support efforts to keep potentially violative products out of the marketplace, we are concerned about the impact this new fee and program expansion would have on commerce and believe that engagement with the regulated community will result in more effective targeting, more efficient regulations and fewer delays for compliant products. We would ask the CPSC for direct stakeholder engagement on this important issue.
