CPSC Safety Academy in Seattle

Last year, the CPSC held its first Safety Academy here in Washington D.C. The agency-sponsored event featured panels of experts, academics, and stakeholders addressing a wide range of issues facing the agency, including flammable fabrics, the 6(b) process, and the testing rule. The event was webcast, and many of the presentations are still available online if you missed them.

The event provided the regulated community, experts, and consumer advocates the opportunity to both learn from and engage with the agency on the important issues the agency has been working on. Educating the public on what we do here at the CPSC is a critical function—especially with the flood of complex rules that have been issued recently–so I am very pleased that we have decided to hold another open educational forum. This year, the CPSC is holding another Safety Academy in Seattle, Washington on September 18, 2013.

I strongly urge anyone on the West Coast who is interested in CPSC issues to attend. If you’d like to participate on a panel, you can e-mail your information and a short abstract to business@cpsc.gov by June 10th.
