Standards for Safety and Sustainability:
Examining the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and Eco-labeling Issues
The 2009 ANSI Legal Issues Forum focused on how organizations engaged in standard-setting activities are affected by several legal developments. Discussions took place in two separate panels:
The Legal Issues Forum was part of the World Standards Week 2009 series of events.
- The first panel addressed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) passed in 2008; what is it, how is it implemented by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and how does it address issues from a consumer’s perspective?
- Panel two examined legal issues related to eco-labeling, including diverse perspectives from the FTC, the Consumers Union, and more.
The forum provided an opportunity for anyone engaged with standards – from
traditional standards developing organizations (SDOs) and consortia to
manufacturers and corporations – to profit from the knowledge of several
well-respected legal experts.
