Join Melissa L. Steinman, a partner in Venable’s Advertising and Marketing practice, for an update on current developments in product safety and warranty laws and recent activity at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. With the complexity of product safety requirements, the changing regulatory environment, and the ferocious plaintiffs’ bar, it is more important than ever for importers, manufacturers, and retailers to understand their obligation to comply with product safety laws and standards, identify and resolve potential product issues quickly, and respond to consumer complaints and warranty issues. The CPSC, now led by a Democrat, has been actively enforcing Section 15(b)’s requirement that product defects must be reported in a timely manner, and the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act has again been a hot topic at the Federal Trade Commission and in Congress. This webinar will review the laws, regulations, and standards relevant to product safety, including those enforced by the CPSC and the states, and provide proactive steps that your company can take to stay in compliance.
