U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is consulting the public on the release of the proposed rulemaking for the safety standard of stationary activity centers (SACs).
This proposed rule mandates ASTM F2012-18 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Stationary Activity Centers. ASTM F2012-18 defines SAC as a freestanding product intended to remain stationary that enables a sitting or standing occupant whose torso is completely surrounded by the product to walk, rock, play, spin or bounce, or all of these, within a limited range of motion.
The proposed rule is open for public consultation until September 4, 2018. The rule will be effective 6 months after the publication of the final rule in the Federal Register.
