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.
