CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin
signed a memorandum today that allows the two agencies to quickly share information about products coming through U.S. ports.
What does that mean? It means federal agencies are cooperating to make U.S. consumers more safe.
“By identifying and checking consumer products at our ports, we can reduce the flow of dangerous products into our homes,” said CPSC Chairman Tenenbaum.
“This is an important first step in strengthening our ability to promote consumer well-being and safety”, said Commissioner Bersin. “With this Memorandum of Understanding, CBP and the Consumer Products Safety Commission will be able to further protect consumers against the importation of dangerous goods into the U.S.”
