Title: Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database  
Abstract: Section 212 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), Public Law 110-314, (August 14, 2008) amended the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) to create a new section 6A. Section 6A of the CPSA requires the 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 website. The Commission initiated a rulemaking to codify its interpretation of the statutory requirements for both the content and procedural aspects of such a public database. A notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) was published in the Federal Register on May 24, 2010, and the comment period ended on July 23, 2010. The Commission approved the final rule on November 24, 2010. The final rule was published in the Federal Register on December 9, 2010.
