Regulation

Enhancing consumer safety and wellness through smart, uniform regulations.

Championing Smart Regulation

Patchwork state regulations hurt consumers, undermine public health and cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars each year. The Consumer Brands Association advocates for smart regulatory frameworks that maintain affordability, promote choice and build consumer trust.

Cutting Confusion

State-by-state regulations can confuse consumers and create infeasible mandates for manufacturers. We support elevating smart, national regulatory solutions to benefit all consumers.

Protecting Public Health

The industry is always learning and improving, diligent in the training and research that promotes the protection of consumer health and safety.

Fostering Innovation

Uniform regulatory frameworks are critical for innovation, giving companies a roadmap to plan for the products consumers will want in the future.

The Urgent Need for CBD Clarity

The market for cannabidiol (CBD) products is booming, but research from the Consumer Brands Association shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans are confused about what CBD is, what it does and whether CBD products are safe. We need a uniform, federal regulatory framework in place because consumers deserve products that are safe in every state.
