Do You Import or Export Consumer Products to the U.S.?

Most consumer products under CPSC's jurisdiction are imported. CPSC works internationally on the development and alignment of consumer product safety requirements, inspection and enforcement coordination as well as consumer education and information dissemination.

What We Do

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 alignment of U.S. product safety requirements at a high level of safety.

Who We Work With

  • Governments, businesses, organizations and others around the world
  • The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Working Party on Consumer Product Safety
  • The International Consumer Product Safety Caucus
  • The Organization of American States's Consumer Health and Safety Network
  • CPSC Regional Programs
