February, 2010: Bill Antheil and Joanne Murray attended the Toy Industry Association annual Toy Fair in NYC. Toy Fair is the industry’s biggest event, featuring manufacturers, testing companies and other stakeholders in the field of children’s products, as well as educational seminars on toy safety and other topics.
In addition, Joanne Murray participated in the 17th Annual Meeting and Training Symposium of the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO). The event offered the opportunity to keep up to date on the latest developments in federal and state product safety laws and regulatory activities. Speakers included CPSC Chair Inez Tenenbaum, CPSC General Counsel Cheryl A. Falvey, Esquire, and other top-level CPSC policy-makers. Joanne found this Symposium to be a wealth of information which keeps her abreast of the CPSC's new initiatives including, of course, enacting new regulations under the CPSIA.
