The commission is working on a new safety standard for table type saws, which if not properly used can be a real hazard. A listening session is scheduled for February 28; see the link here for details on how to attend or participate:


In August 2023, the commission determined under the Portable Fuel Container Safety Act of 2020 (PFCSA) that ASTM F3429/F3429M–23 is a consumer product safety standard that impedes the propagation of flames into pre-filled portable fuel containers, and therefore incorporated the voluntary standard by reference as a mandatory rule. ASTM has since notified the Commission that it has revised this voluntary standard. CPSC seeks comment on whether the revision meets the PFCSA’s requirements for adoption in the mandatory rule. Comments must be received by February 23, 2024. See the technical details and how to comment here:



The agency published a proposed rule that would if adopted amend the definition of hazardous waste applicable to corrective action to address releases from solid waste management units at RCRA-permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities. See the NPRM here:



The agency published another ICR related to gathering information about the training and activities of fire brigades. See it here:
