On November 12th, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has opened a public consultation for the proposed rulemaking on the safety standard for infant sleep products.

This rulemaking proposes to adopt the current ASTM standard for inclined sleep products, with modifications that would make the mandatory standard more stringent than the voluntary standard. The proposed changes include limiting the seatback angle for sleep to 10 degrees or less.

The CPSC’s proposed standard would cover products intended for infant sleep that are not already addressed by another standard. Additionally, the CPSC proposes to include the mandatory standard for infant sleep products in the Commission’s list of notices of requirements (NORs).

The CPSC also proposes to amend the consumer registration rule to identify explicitly infant sleep products as a durable infant or toddler product subject to CPSC’s consumer registration requirements.
The public consultation is open until January 27th, 2020.
