Power of open data
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) believes in the power of open data and being accessible to the public. This is why we make our data, deliberations, and decisions, accessible to consumers, developers and stakeholders, in accordance with the Open Government Initiative.
We use our website to broadcast live webcasts of meetings, hearings, and interactive workshops and trainings. Staff memos, technical analyses, Federal Register notices, Commissioner's statements and public comments are posted online during the course of CPSC's decisional processes. Recalls, safety alerts, safety awareness programs, interpretive rules, final rules and enforcement policies are all available on this site.
