CPSC Will Hold Public Hearing on Agenda and Priorities for FYs 2019-2020

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published a Federal Register notice on March 1, 2018, announcing that it will hold a public hearing on April 11, 2018, to receive comments about CPSC's agenda and priorities for fiscal years (FY) 2019-2020. See https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/03/01/2018-04129/commission-agenda-and-priorities-notice-of-hearing CPSC's Fiscal Year 2019 Performance Budget Request to Congress states that CPSC "will continue supporting nanotechnology research, coordinating with other federal agencies to extend limited agency resources by leveraging other research efforts." See https://www.cpsc.gov/s3fs-public/FY2019PBR.pdf As reported in our February 21, 2018, blog item, in FY 2017, CPSC established seven research collaborations on the environmental health and safety of nanomaterials. According to CPSC's budget request, in FYs 2018 and 2019, CPSC intends to establish or maintain three collaborations with other organizations to work on nanotechnology research or issues affecting consumer products. Written comments and requests to make oral presentations at the public hearing are due March 28, 2018. CPSC seeks comment on questions such as the priorities that CPSC should consider emphasizing; activities CPSC should consider deemphasizing; and whether CPSC should consider making any changes or adjustments to its proposed or ongoing safety standards activities, regulation, and enforcement efforts in FYs 2019 and 2020.
