The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is seeking comments “on the proposed extension of an existing collection of information” from manufacturers and importers of bicycle helmets, multi-purpose lighters and mattresses and mattress pads. CPSC uses product-testing information compiled and maintained by these manufacturers, importers or private labelers to help protect product users from injuries or accidental death and to obtain corrective actions if the companies “fail to comply with the standard in a manner that creates a substantial risk of injury to the public.”

CPSC invites comments on (i) “whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of CPSC’s function, including whether the information will have practical utility”; (ii) “the accuracy of CPSC’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used”; (iii) “ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected”; and (iv) “ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.” Comments regarding all three products are requested by July 19, 2010. See Federal Register, May 18, 2010.
