The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, Public Law 110–314, 122 Stat. 3016, enacted August 14, 2008, amends section 6 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA), 15 U.S.C. 2051 et seq. Specifically, the amendments shorten the time periods for notice and opportunity to comment on public disclosure of product-specific information, broaden the statutory exceptions to section 6(b), and eliminate the Federal Register publication requirement the Commission previously had to follow when it made a finding that the public health and safety required public disclosure within a lesser period of notice than that is required by section 6(b)(1). The Commission is issuing this rule to reflect the newly-enacted statutory amendments on public disclosure of product-specific information.
