Legal Policy & Product Safety

Legal Policy and Product Safety

The U.S. legal system is more than twice asexpensive as our major competitors such as Japan, France, Canada and the UnitedKingdom. Tort claims and related litigation cost more than $250 billion peryear. These costs result in lost jobs and lost growth opportunities.Manufacturers support a legal system that encourages a fair, consistent andcommonsense approach.   

The NAM supports effective regulation andoversight by federal agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission(CPSC) because it complements manufacturers’ long-time commitment to safety andexcellence.The NAM advocates for commonsense policies that encourage the use of voluntarystandards and cooperation between government and the private sector to achieveour mutual goals.
