Legislation has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives to revise the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-314) to  reduce regulatory burdens of the current law while maintaining consumer protections and to provide greater flexibility to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to regulate based on risk. The Enhancing CPSC Authority and Discretion Act of 2011 (ECADA; H.R. 1139) has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which may vote on the measure in the coming weeks.

Among other things, H.R. 1939 makes important changes to the CPSC Public Database to specify who is allowed to submit reports of harm (ROH) on injuries, illnesses, or fatalities (or risk of same) resulting from use of consumer products. The bill also creates a process for resolving claims of materially inaccurate information (MII) contained in such reports and prevents CPSC from publishing ROHs under investigation for MII until such claims are resolved.

Bipartisan support in the House committee will be critical for ECADA’s success. If you live or work in a district represented by a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, please use the form below to urge your Representative to support ECADA.
