Congress applies pressure on CPSC

Congress sent a letter to the CPSC last Friday concerning CPSIA and implored CPSC to clarify things for manufacturers in four areas so they could comply with the February 10 implementation date of some of the Act's provisions.  Procedurally this is impossible.  The exemptions being proposed cannot take place until after February 10.  The Notices of Proposed Rulemaking have a comment period until February 17.  CPSC has said that products are not exempt from testing until the proposed rulemaking is finalized and published in the Federal Register.
