Statement from Acting Chairman Nancy Nord on the signing of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act by President Bush

August 14, 2008

"The new product safety legislation signed into law today is a victory for parents and consumers. New regulatory authorities and enforcement tools, many of which I asked of Congress last year, will make it easier for CPSC to find and recall unsafe products made around the world. CPSC is ready to implement the law fully, fairly and in a way that bolsters the safety of children’s products and increases consumer confidence."
