We regret that due to the recent lapse of appropriations our office was closed from December 22, 2018 to January 26, 2019, and FOIA staff was unable to process any new or pending requests and appeals during that time. The resulting backlog of new and pending requests will necessarily impact our processing times. We appreciate your patience as we work to address the pending requests.

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Amendments of 1996 require all federal agencies to use electronic information technology to foster public availability of all FOIA documents. For more information about obtaining publicly available records from CPSC see our Guide to Public Information.
