The Database is the Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database
located on SaferProducts.gov. The law requires CPSC to maintain this Database on
the safety of consumer products and other products or substances regulated by CPSC. Submitters can file Reports about a
harm or risk of harm related to the use of a consumer product or other product or
substance within the jurisdiction of CPSC. The Database is required to be publicly
available, searchable, and accessible through the Internet.
Beginning on March 11, 2011, Reports that contain minimum information required by
law are eligible to be posted in the Database. Anyone can search SaferProducts.gov
for safety information about products they own or may be thinking about buying.
Product manufacturers (including importers) and private labelers that are identified
in a Report may submit comments to be displayed on SaferProducts.gov along with
the Report. Information about product recalls is also available for search and review.
SaferProducts.gov represents a new level of transparency for CPSC, allowing the
public to have easy access to safety information about consumer products.
The Commission does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the
contents of SaferProducts.gov, particularly
with respect to information submitted by people outside CPSC.
