An Interactive Discussion and Luncheon with Commissioner Anne M. Northup of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

April 30, 2012 • Washington, DC

Please join Crowell & Moring's Product Risk Management Group for a luncheon featuring remarks by CPSC Commissioner Anne M. Northup on the effects of over-regulation on U.S. businesses. Manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers of consumer products are dealing with increased U.S. regulation as a result of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. Commissioner Northup will share her views on the regulatory activities she sees on a daily basis at the CPSC and welcomes a lively dialogue with attendees regarding the impact these actions are having on businesses.

Commissioner Northup is pro-trade and focuses on issues that create a better environment for competition, growth, and worldwide commerce. As a former Member of Congress and current CPSC Commissioner, she has a unique perspective on the substantial costs and implementation challenges that government overreach can present to both businesses and the economy. The Commissioner will address a number of topics regarding over-regulation, including:

  • How the CPSC can more effectively and efficiently advance its safety mission;
  • Upcoming regulatory issues on the CPSC's agenda;
  • The impact on businesses of various CPSC actions, including the new third-party testing rule and the continuing evolution of the portal.

This event will be held at Crowell & Moring's Washington office from 12:00pm-1:30pm.
