Manufacturers' requirements to include product safety owner's cards
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 28-E
§ 490-b. Manufacturers' requirements to include product safety owner's
cards. 1. Manufacturers of durable juvenile products distributed, sold
or made available in New York state shall include a product safety
owner's card with all sales to initial consumers of durable juvenile
products. The manufacturer shall not use or disseminate to any other
party the information collected by the manufacturer for any purpose
other than notification to the consumer concerned in the event of a
product recall or safety alert regarding the product concerned. Within
the product safety owner's card, such manufacturers shall request
initial consumer information as prescribed by the United States consumer
product safety commission, pursuant to subsection (d) of section 104 of
the United States Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, Pub.
L. No. 110-314 and the United States consumer product safety commission
rules promulgated in accordance with such act, to effectuate the
notification required by this article. The product safety owner's card
shall include a statement indicating that the information shall not be
used for any purpose other than to facilitate a recall of or safety
alert regarding that product.

2. Such manufacturer shall retain for a period of no less than six
years any initial consumer contact information obtained. This
information shall not be sold, posted, transferred or used for any other
purpose other than to communicate information relating to a recall,
warning or defect directly associated with the product.

3. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to compel a consumer to
complete and return such product safety owner's card.
