CPSC works to save lives and keep families safe by reducing the unreasonable risk of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products and fulfilling its vision to be the recognized global leader in consumer product safety. CPSC does this by:
CPSC’s Office of Import Surveillance works closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to identify and examine imported shipments of consumer products. As part of this effort, CPSC has colocated investigators at ports of entry who work side-by-side with CBP staff. CPSC also works to educate importers, manufacturers, and Customs brokers on CPSC’s standards and procedures.
