Simplifying Compliance for Small Business Owners

 

  • The Problem
    New business owners seeking to launch their products were required to navigate a complex landscape of federal product safety regulations to determine which rules applied to their businesses.
     

  • Our Solution
    Our team provided an extensive upgrade of the Regulatory Robot, an interactive online tool that provides small business users with quick, free access to information about testing, labeling, and certification requirements. This included a full redesign to improve user-friendliness and increase completion rates. After completing the Robot-generated questionnaire, users receive a detailed report summarizing relevant regulations.
     

  • The Results
    This simplifies compliance for small business owners and manufacturers by guiding them through a series of questions that determine which regulations apply to the product – eliminating the need to sift through lengthy documents. CPSC has described the tool as “very intuitive” and “very clear.” To see the Regulatory Robot in action, visit https://www.cpsc.gov/Business--Manufacturing/Regulatory-Robot/Safer-Products-Start-Here
