Japan To Establish Consumer Product Safety Commission
As part of its continuing development of products liability law, Japan is planning to establish a new governmental body that will centralize the gathering of information on consumer-related accidents, analyze the information, and decide on measures to prevent recurrences. This accident information is currently reported to several ministries and agencies. The Japanese Government intends to model the new organ on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The government will also revise the Consumer Product Safety Law to more comprehensively require product manufacturers to report accidents related to their products to the government.
