Join the HTA and CPSC Officials for a Chat Addressing CPSIA and Small Businesses

Friday, March 26, 2010

In cooperation with the Handmade Toy Alliance, the Consumer Product Safety Commission will be joining us in a Webinar to talk about what the CPSIA means for our community. This is your opportunity to get answers to your questions both specific and general about how the CPSIA affects your business.

Here are the details:

On Friday, March 26 at 11 a.m. EDT, (8 a.m. PDT) Senior CPSC Officials Jay Howell and Gib Mullan will be live on a Webinar for our members to talk about how the CPSIA has impacted small businesses.

Jay and Gib will share their insights and experiences about how the CPSIA is being implemented and enforced, how compliance with the law is possible, what has been stayed and what is in effect, what needs to be tested and what does not, and what the future holds.

Presentations by both officials will be followed by a question and answer session. Jay and Gib are doing this webinar as part of an effort by CPSC to connect with organizations like ours and to demystify the CPSIA for small business owners.

CPSC will record the session for those who can't make it.
