Contents CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION ISSUES ; CONTENTS ; PREFACE ; BETTER INFORMATION AND PLANNING WOULD STRENGTHEN CPSC'S OVERSIGHT OF IMPORTED PRODUCTS ; WHY GAO DID THIS STUDY ; WHAT GAO RECOMMENDS ; WHAT GAO FOUND ; ABBREVIATIONS ; BACKGROUND ; CPSC Protects Consumers Primarily through Product Safety Standards ; Import Safety Responsibility within CPSC ; CPSC Works Closely with CBP at Ports of Entry ; CPSC'S AUTHORITIES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE EFFECTIVE, BUT IMPLEMENTATION IS LIMITED BY INCOMPLETE INFORMATION ON IMPORTED PRODUCTS AND RESOURCE AND PRACTICAL CONSTRAINTS
Consensus Exists That CPSC Has Broad Authority over Imported Products, but CPSC's Assessment of Effectiveness Has Been Limited Implementation of CPSC's New Authorities to Prevent Entry of Unsafe Products into the United States Has Been Delayed ; CPSC Needs Better Targeting Information to Strengthen Enforcement with CBP at Ports of Entry ; Updated MOU with CBP Would Be Useful as CPSC Develops Its Risk Assessment Methodology ; Better Advance Shipment Data Would Strengthen CPSC's Targeting Efforts
CPSC's Enforcement of Import Safety Authorities Is Limited by Resource and Practical Constraints AUTHORITIES OF SELECT AGENCIES ARE COMPARABLE TO CPSC'S, BUT FDA AND USDA'S BORDER SURVEILLANCE ACTIVITIES AND OVERSEAS PRESENCE PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR STRENGTHENING CPSC'S IMPLEMENTATION OF ITS AUTHORITIES ; CPSC's Authorities to Prevent the Entry of Unsafe Products Are Generally Comparable to Those of Other Federal Agencies ; Other Federal Agencies' Border Surveillance and Overseas Activities to Prevent the Entry of Unsafe Products May Be Useful for CPSC to Consider
INFORMATION SHARING AND COOPERATION AMONG COUNTRIES PROVIDE WAY TO BRIDGE DIFFERENCES AND STRENGTHEN CPSC'S IMPLEMENTATION OF ITS AUTHORITIES, BUT CPSC LACKS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN TO GUIDE ITS WORK While Similarities in Import Safety Authorities and Challenges Exist among Certain Countries, Their Institutional Structures and Implementation Reflect Unique National Approaches ; Engagement among Countries Provides Ways to Address Shared Import Safety Challenges ; CPSC Has Not Developed Long-term Plans for International Activities
CPSC HAS ESTABLISHED ANNUAL GOALS AND SHORT-TERM PLANS TO PREVENT THE ENTRY OF UNSAFE PRODUCTS, BUT LACKS A LONG-TERM PLAN FOR THE FUTURE CPSC Has Established Short-term Plans and Annual Goals for Import Safety ; CPSC Has Recognized the Need for U.S. Consumer Product Safety Policy to Comply with WTO Obligations and International Trade Agreements ; CPSC Lacks a Long-term Plan to Prevent the Entry of Unsafe Products ; CONCLUSIONS ; RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EXECUTIVE ACTION; AGENCY COMMENTS AND OUR EVALUATION ; APPENDIX I.
