This consumer safety specification covers the performance requirements and methods of testing to help ensure the satisfactory performance of infant floor seats. These requirements are designed to minimize injuries to children resulting from normal usage and reasonably foreseeable misuse or abuse of infant floor seats.
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F3317-20 prohibits infant floor seats to be produced after the approval date of this consumer safety specification to either by label or other means, indicate compliance with this specification unless it conforms to all requirements contained herein.
For purposes of this consumer safety specification, an infant floor seat is a seat which is placed on the floor that is intended to contain a child who can hold his/her head up unassisted (approximately 4 months of age) until the child can either walk (approximately 12 months of age) or get in and out of the product by themselves. An infant floor seat may include a tray, toys or a restraint system. This standard does not include pillow-like infant positioners that are generally constructed from fabric and stuffing for the purposes of positioning or lounging and do not have an active or passive restraint.
