CPSC Asks for Comment on Final Ad Rules

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has asked for comment on its new rules for warnings in internet and catalog advertisements that it has formulated as a result of H.R. 4040, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. 

The rules require that advertisements that provide a direct means of purchase carry the same warnings as the packaging for toys that pose a choking hazard in children 3 years of age or younger.   The Commission has asked for input into a number of areas relating to the placement of the warnings and the impact on business.  We are considering filing and would appreciate your input on this issue.

If you have any questions, you can contact Dan Jaffe in ANA's Washington office at 202-296-2359 or at djaffe@ana.net.
