  • CPSIA Compliance Challenges Importers, Regulators
    November 11, 2009 — Product Liability Law360

    Bridget E. Calhoun, co-chair of Crowell & Moring LLP’s Product Risk Management practice, is featured for her comments on ways regulators and importers can avoid obstacles posed by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), and the unique difficulties presented by China. According to Calhoun, clients should get assurances or indemnifications in their contracts “that products would comply with the rules set out, whether mandatory safety rules or voluntary industry standards.” She also suggests that “importers engage in an ongoing audit of products to make sure their contents are not altered, and to ask manufacturers to inform them whenever they change subcontractors or suppliers.”
