ASTM International published the ASTM F2057 — 17 Standard Safety Specification for Clothing Storage Units on October 1, 2017. The standard was revised to enhance the safety of dressers and to help prevent tip over accidents to children.

The revision updates the consumer warning label, which includes a new hazard symbol showing a child climbing the drawers of a dresser. A circle with a black or red line through it appears over the pictograph.

Aside from the label, the revision also includes a section to determine the permanence of that label was added to the standard.

Language in the introduction of the standard was also revised.
