Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
The CPSC is an independent, Federal regulatory agency that is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products including the safety of consumer products such as toys, cribs and child furniture. The CPSC develops voluntary standards with industry, issues and enforces mandatory standards or banning consumer products if no feasible standard would adequately protect the public, obtains the recall of products or arranges for their repair, conducts research on potential product hazards and informs and educates consumers through the media, State and local governments and private organizations and by responding to consumer inquiries.
Data: Consumer product-related statistics for children’s products, child poisonings, carbon monoxide poisonings, electrocutions, fires, fireworks, sports and recreation and other products. The CPSC also has injury data on several consumer products.
Publications: Produces and disseminates publications and other materials on crib safety and SIDS risk reduction, child safety, children’s furniture, clothing safety, toy safety and other topics. All publications are available on their Web site organized by topic, title and category. Most are available in hard copy. All CPSC publications are free and in the public domain. The CPSC only asks that you not change the materials and give proper attribution. Several publications are available in Spanish on their Spanish Web site, El Mundo Hispano de la CPSC.
