The Consumer Product Safety Commission said it would review whether to award a manufacturer a manufacturer’s warranty for a product that causes a fire or other injury.
The commission is considering whether to issue a final ruling by late March, which would allow manufacturers to file for the benefits.
A similar review was held in 2014.
The CPSC also said it is considering the possibility of requiring manufacturers to provide information about the cause of fires.
The agency said it will review a report on a manufacturer that was commissioned by the state last month.
“Manufacturers who choose to participate in the investigation and provide this information will be required to comply with the requirements outlined in the report,” the CPSC said in a statement.
The manufacturer will be asked to submit “a written explanation of its compliance with this requirement.”
It said it plans to file a motion to expedite the review process.
