Legal Policy & Product Safety

Legal Policy and Product Safety

The U.S. legal system is more than twice as expensive as our major competitors, including Japan, France, Canada and the United Kingdom. Tort claims and related litigation cost more than $250 billion per year. Manufacturers support a legal system that encourages a fair, consistent and common sense approach.

The NAM supports effective regulation and oversight by federal agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and advocates for commonsense policies that encourage the use of voluntary standards and cooperation between government and the private sector to achieve our mutual goals.
