Agency cites possible shortages and low risk of serious injury

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced that it will exercise enforcement discretion under Reese’s Law for zinc-air button and coin cell batteries used in hearing aids until March 8, 2024, citing possible shortages and a low risk of serious injury. ADA and other organizations submitted requests to the agency to delay enforcement of Reese’s Law and we are pleased that the agency has taken this action.

The announcement has also been posted to the website here: Button Cell and Coin Battery Business Guidance |
