From: NEWS from CPSC
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the signing of memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with Hong Kong and Australia to improve product safety.
The vision for improvements in the safety of consumer products extends from Asia to Australia to America. The MOUs with Australia and Hong Kong put formal structures into place for information sharing about recalled products, consumer product regulations, product testing requirements and product safety campaigns. The MOUs also allow regulators to work more easily toward compatible product safety standards.
CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum signed both MOUs with product safety regulators during visits to Hong Kong and Sydney to discuss the need for global improvements in consumer product safety.
