Section 212 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (“CPSIA”, Pub. L. 110-314) amends the Consumer Product Safety Act (“CPSA”) to add a new section 6A. Section 6A of the CPSA requires the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC ” or “Commission”) to establish and maintain a publicly available, searchable database on the safety of consumer products, and other products or substances regulated by the Commission, which is accessible to the public through the Commission’s web site. Pursuant to section 6A(a)(3) of the CPSA, the public database must be established not later than 18 months after the Commission submits a plan to Congress regarding the database under section 6A(a)(2). Such plan was submitted to Congress on September 10, 2009, which means the database must be established not later than March of 2011. The attached draft Federal Register notice for Commission consideration contains a final rule on the Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database interpreting the requirements of section 212 of the CPSIA. Please indicate your vote on the following options. I. Approve the publication of the draft notice in the Federal Register
