CPSC works closely with the European Commission and member states to cooperate on consumer product safety policies and requirements.
August 16, 2013

CPSC works closely with the European Commission and member states to cooperate on consumer product safety policies and requirements. These efforts include discussions on aligning product safety requirements and expert consultation on emerging hazards. 

 

One of our most important partnerships with the European Commission is our joint outreach in China. Every year we conduct industry training for consumer product manufacturers in cooperation with our Chinese counterpart agency, the Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection, and Quarantine (AQSIQ).   These events are targeted to improve compliance with U.S. and European product safety requirements in high risk product categories and to ensure that Chinese exporters take seriously the need to utilize globally recognized best practices.
