January 15, 2013 | Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairman Inez Tenenbaum will deliver a keynote address on Tuesday, February 12th, during the American International Toy Fair. Chairman Tenenbaum’s speech will immediately precede the Toy Industry Association’s (TIA) annual Toy Safety Compliance Update. Both presentations will take place in Room 1E19 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Beginning at 9 a.m., Chairman Tenenbaum’s keynote will address recent CPSC activity on the safety of toys and children’s products and in implementing the federal safety requirements and CPSC priorities for 2013.

Immediately following the chairman’s speech, the Toy Safety Compliance Update will begin at 10 a.m. and run until 12:30 p.m. The session will highlight important changes in U.S. federal, state, and international toy safety requirements, and will detail emerging issues likely to be under consideration by legislators and regulators in key markets around the globe.
