CHA & CPSC to Host Free CPSIA Session at CHA Winter Show

 CHA just sent the following email out to CHA members announcing a free seminar with the Consumer Product Safety Commission at the upcoming CHA Winter Show.  Please see below for details on this rare opportunity to discuss CPSIA legislation directly with the CPSC at our Show.


As we all know, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) is a sweeping new law that impacts a broad spectrum of our industry. From manufacturers of toys (and items considered “children’s products”) to the kids that play with them, everyone is affected in some way – even those who make and donate products to hospitals and charities.

There are new rules to be understood and adopted by everyone from the largest global manufacturer to the crafter working in the family workshop to the mom-and-pop shop on the corner.

Now, for the first time at CHA’s Winter show, you will be able to hear directly from a US government official from the Consumer Produt Safety Commission (CPSC) about the CPSIA and the latest developments surrounding these regulations. Join us for this important FREE seminar at the upcoming CHA 2010 Winter Trade Show & Convention.

Speaker: Mr. John “Gib” Mullan, Director of Compliance and Field Operations for the U.S., Consumer Product Safety Commission
