You are required to report potentially hazardous products that you manufacture, distribute, import or sell under Section 15.

You must:

  • File a report within 24 hours of getting information that reasonably lets you know that a product does not comply with safety rules.
  • Report products that contain a defect that could create a substantial risk of injury to the public or that presents an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death.

You can also report a potentially unsafe product to CPSC's Office of Compliance at (301) 504-7520 or by sending an e-mail to sect15@cpsc.gov.
