Operations, 2,544 in-depth investigations by phone, 4,600 hotline staff interviews, and conducts a review of 6,900 internet forms received from persons requesting information about product-related incidents or injuries. ATLA also requests that incident reports that contain identifying information be made available, in unredacted form, to counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants. The statutes administered by the Commission explicitly preclude the release of the type of identifying information sought to be obtained by ATLA. Section 6 of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. 2055, provides that the Commission may not disclose any information which will permit the public to ascertain the identity of a manufacturer without providing prior notification and opportunity for comment to the manufacturer to which such information pertains. In addition, section 25 of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. 2074, provides that any accident or investigation report made by an officer or employee of the Commission shall be made available to the public in a manner which will not identify any injured person or any person treating him, without the consent of the person so identified. Records that could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy are also exempted from production and disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(b). To the extent an injured person has consented to release such information, that information would be readily available to counsel for either the plaintiff or the defendant. The information collected from persons who have sustained injuries or who have witnessed safety-related incidents associated with consumer products is an important source of safety information. The information collected is vital to the Commission in its efforts to assess the safety of consumer products and identify areas regarding consumer safety issues that may require further development and improvement through voluntary standards activities, rulemaking proceedings, recall activities, and information and education campaigns. Accordingly, the Commission has submitted the request for an extension of the existing approval of collections of information conducted during follow-up activities for product-related injuries.
