CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION

16 CFR Ch. II

Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: In this document, the Commission publishes its semiannual 
regulatory flexibility agenda. In addition, this document includes an 
agenda of regulatory actions the Commission expects to be under 
development or review by the agency during the next year. This document 
meets the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive 
Order 12866.

DATES: The Commission welcomes comments on each subject area of the 
agenda, particularly from small entities. Written comments concerning 
the agenda should be received in the Office of the Secretary by 
December 22, 2004.

ADDRESSES: Comments on the regulatory flexibility agenda should be 
mailed to the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety 
Commission, Washington, DC 20207-0001; telephone (301) 504-7923, or 
delivered to the Office of the Secretary, Room 502, 4330 East-West 
Highway, Bethesda, Maryland 20814-4408. Comments should be captioned 
``Regulatory Flexibility Agenda.'' Comments may also be filed by 
telefacsimile to (301) 504-0127, or by e-mail to cpsc-os@cpsc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information on the agenda 
in general, contact Lowell Martin, Office of the General Counsel, 
Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207-0001, 
telephone (301) 504-7628. For further information regarding a 
particular item on the agenda, consult the individual listed in the 
column headed ``Contact'' for that particular item.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 
U.S.C. 601-612) contains several provisions intended to reduce 
unnecessary and disproportionate regulatory requirements on small 
businesses, small governmental organizations, and other small entities. 
Section 602 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 602) requires each agency to publish 
twice each year a regulatory flexibility agenda containing a brief 
description of the subject area of any rule expected to be proposed or 
promulgated that is likely to have a ``significant economic impact'' on 
a ``substantial number'' of small entities. The agency must also 
provide a summary of the nature of the rule, and a schedule for acting 
on each rule for which the agency has issued a notice of proposed 
rulemaking.

     The regulatory flexibility agenda is also required to contain 
the name and address of the agency official knowledgeable about the 
items listed. Further, agencies are required to provide notice of 
their agendas to small entities and to solicit their comments by 
direct notification, or by inclusion in publications likely to be 
obtained by such entities.

     Additionally, Executive Order 12866 requires each agency to 
publish twice each year a regulatory agenda of regulations under 
development or review during the next year, and states that such an 
agenda may be combined with the agenda published in accordance with 
the RFA. The regulatory flexibility agenda published below lists 
the regulatory activities expected to be under development or 
review during the next 12 months. It includes all such activities, 
whether or not they may have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. This agenda also includes 
regulatory activities that appeared in the spring 2004 agenda that 
have been completed by the Commission prior to publication of this 
agenda.

     The agenda contains a brief description and summary of each 
regulatory activity, including the objectives and legal basis for 
each; an approximate schedule of target dates, subject to revision, 
for the development or completion of each activity, and the name 
and telephone number of a knowledgeable agency official concerning 
particular items on the agenda. All agency contacts have the same 
address: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207-
0001.

     For this edition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission's 
regulatory agenda, the most significant regulatory actions are 
included in The Regulatory Plan, which appears in part II of this 
issue of the Federal Register. The Regulatory Plan entries are 
listed in the table of contents below and are denoted by a 
bracketed bold reference, which directs the reader to the 
appropriate sequence in part II.

Dated: September 23, 2004.

Todd Stevenson,

Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.

3813. POSSIBLE SPECIAL PACKAGING STANDARD FOR HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS 
CONTAINING HYDROXIDES




Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant. Major status under 5 USC 801 is 
undetermined.

Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined

Legal Authority: 15 USC 1471, Poison Prevention Packaging Act; 15 USC 
1261(p), Federal Hazardous Substances Act

CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Sodium and potassium hydroxide are caustic substances found 
in many household products. In addition to sodium and potassium 
hydroxide, other hydroxides, such as calcium, lithium, and ammonium 
hydroxide are also found in consumer products. There are numerous 
reports of injuries, ranging from minor irritation to second degree 
burns of the oral cavity, esophagus, eyes, and skin resulting from 
exposure to these products. Because of the potential for injury to 
children, household substances in dry forms containing 10 percent or 
more by weight of free or chemically unneutralized sodium and/or 
potassium hydroxide, and all other household substances containing 2 
percent or more by weight of free or chemically unneutralized sodium 
and/or potassium hydroxide currently require child-resistant packaging 
under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
Based upon new injury and toxicity information, the staff is 
considering whether to recommend: (1) requiring special packaging for 
all hydroxides, and (2) decreasing the percentage of hydroxide for 
special packaging to be required. The staff is preparing a briefing 
package for Commission consideration.
