CPSC RIN: 3041-AD36 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Amendment to Regulation on Information Disclosure Under Section 6(b) of the CPSC 

In 1983, the Commission issued a regulation interpreting the provisions of section 6(b) of the CPSA.  In accordance with the Commission’s Fiscal Year 2013 Midyear Review and Operating Plan Adjustments, on January 14, 2014, staff submitted to the Commission a briefing package recommending that the Commission issue a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). On February 12, 2014, the Commission voted to publish the NPRM, as amended by the Commission. On February 26, 2014, the Commission published the NPRM in the Federal Register . The NPRM proposed to modernize the regulation to account for the significant improvements in information technology that have occurred since the regulation’s adoption. The NPRM also proposed to streamline the regulation to be as closely aligned with section 6(b) as possible, while maintaining the Commission’s compliance with the statutory requirements and the protections of section 6(b)(5) of the CPSA for information filed in accordance with the requirements of section 15(b) of the CPSA. On February 8, 2023, the Commission voted to publish a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPR). The SNPR responded to public comments on the 2014 NPR and proposed additional changes to the regulation to further modernize and align the regulation with the statute. On February 17, 2023, the Commission published the SNPR in the Federal Register.  Staff will review the comments received and submit a final rule briefing package to the commission in fiscal year 2023.
