CPSIA’s Effects on FDA-Regulated Products to be Discussed At Upcoming ICPHSO Conference

Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C.’s Anne Marie Murphy will present at the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization’s (“ICPHSO’s”) 16th Annual Meeting and Training Symposium, which is scheduled to take place from February 24-27, 2009 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Florida. A copy of the conference agenda is available here. Ms. Murphy, along with other panel members, will discuss questions arising from the potential effects of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 ("CPSIA”) on FDA-regulated products, such as:

•Jurisdictional overlaps between the FDA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission on safety of products regulated by both agencies;

•How to prepare properly qualified General Conformity Certifications for products regulated by both agencies;

•How third-party testing for dual-regulated children's products may affect product development and manufacture; and

•How new enforcement authorities in the CPSIA potentially may affect dual-regulated products.
