Consumer Product Safety Commission, Customs and Border Protection tighten import safety collaboration
from American Shipper
Coordinated targeting of unsafe imports went into full swing April 26 with the signing of an agreement giving Consumer Product Safety Commission personnel full access to U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Automated Commercial System. The memorandum of understanding gives CPSC the ability to conduct import risk safety assessments and select high-risk shipments for inspections with the help of a computer program that sifts through data by comparing it to predetermined safety criteria.
