CR comments to the CPSC on its priorities for fiscal years 2025 and 2026

Consumer Reports (CR), the independent, nonprofit, and nonpartisan member organization, welcomes the chance to submit comments on the agenda and priorities of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fiscal years 2025 and 2026. 

For 88 years, improving product safety has been central to CR’s mission. We assess safety risks, investigate their impact on consumers, and inform the public and the CPSC when we identify product hazards—all on a data-driven basis. 

We push for strong action from the CPSC to keep the public safe from unreasonable risks posed by consumer products, and defend the agency’s authority to carry out its duty, including through promulgating mandatory safety standards, holding companies accountable, and warning the public about potential hazards. We support and defend the CPSC’s vital role in pursuing a more consumer-driven marketplace in which both people and companies benefit from safer products and fewer product-related injuries and deaths.
