What We Do

What we do International Page Graphic

Most consumer products under CPSC’s jurisdiction are imported. The goal of all of CPSC’s international activities is to ensure the safety of imported consumer products used in the United States. We pursue this goal by working with international partners to improve manufacturing and regulatory coordination and to encourage the use of best practices that will protect consumers.
