What is the CPSC state and local program?

Field operations is responsible for implementing the CPSC state and local program.  Our staff works with state and local authorities engaged in activities relating to health, safety, consumer protection, investigations, and educational programs to expand the reach of the CPSC to consumers across the country.  CPSC state designees serve as the product safety contacts around the nation to promote consumer product safety, consumer protection and injury prevention within the designee’s specific state.
