The United States, Canada and Mexico's Federal consumer protection agencies have signed an agreement affirming their intent to coordinate and cooperate in protecting their nations' citizens from unsafe products.

In February 2018 the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Department of Health Canada (Health Canada) and the Consumer Protection Federal Agency of the United Mexican States (PROFECO) signed a trilateral agreement of understanding. This understanding is expected to help formalize future technical exchanges and regulatory cooperation among the product safety authorities.

A recent example of this coordinated effort concerned wall outlet chargers for small electronic products. Experts from all three agencies analyzed and recommended specific testing solutions for previously unknown and unaddressed hazards. Three collective heads were better than one as the agencies identified and corrected potential hazards.
