Cataclysmic Change or Business as Usual: Product Regulation in the Trump Administration

October 25, 2018 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Two years into the Trump Administration and:
  • the Consumer Product Safety Commission finally has a Republican majority, 
  • the Department of Transportation has released its 3.0 guidance on autonomous vehicles, 
  • NIST has published a 375 page recommendation on medical device security, 
  • the FTC is holding a series of hearings on the transformative nature of the digital transformation on markets. 
What does this all this activity in the United States mean for companies following the rapidly evolving regulations globally related to the safety and security of products?

This PLAC (Product Liability Advisory Council) webinar will describe the current landscape at the federal agencies setting policy for product safety and security. With all the recent talk of regulatory humility in the face of great technological change, we’ll discuss whether regulators practice what they preach and if recent actions encourage or stifle innovation. Additional topics to be covered include:
  • The expectations at federal regulators regarding the use of technology to enhance product safety;
  • What regulatory expectations can be gleaned from recent federal enforcement trends;
  • Federal regulatory expectations for safety, security and privacy by design; 
  • Expectations for compliance programs and corporate oversight of safety; and 
  • What you need to be watching in the current administration as the agencies hit their stride.
The session will compare and contrast activities across the federal government relevant to consumer products broadly defined with a particular focus on product safety and security.
