Marking the four-year anniversary of a landmark consumer product safety law, Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairwoman Inez Tenenbaum will discuss improvements made on consumer issues in the United States and globally during a National Press Club Newsmaker on Aug. 9.
The event begins at 10 a.m. in the club's Zenger Room.
The United States now has the lowest lead limits and strongest crib safety standards in the world, Tenenbaum said.
Tenenbaum will also talk about new results from CPSC's efforts to stop dangerous products at U.S. ports, her work with foreign regulators to make imported products safer and initiatives aimed at giving consumers greater confidence in the safety of the marketplace.
