Injury and Accident Law

CONFIDENTIALITY OF REPORTS UNDER SECTION 15(b) OF THE CPSA


The Commission often receives requests for information provided by firms under section 15(b) of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. § 2064(b). Section 6(b)(5) of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. § 2055(b)(5), prohibits the release of such information unless a remedial action has been accepted in writing, a complaint has been issued or a firm consents to the release.

Reports under section 102 of the Child Safety Protection Act receive the same confidential treatment as information submitted under Section 15 of the CPSA.
