On Wednesday, CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum addressed attendees of the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization conference at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C. Hear for yourself what she had to say about the agency’s priorities and commitment to consumers by watching the speech.

“When you look at the revitalization that has gone on at the CPSC, state regulators, and advocacy groups, 2010 is shaping up, in my opinion, to be the Year of the Consumer,” Tenenbaum said in her keynote speech.

Tenenbaum also spoke frankly to manufacturers, telling them to work quickly on new crib standards or the agency will act and telling them to take responsibility for defective products.
