ASTM Publishes Revised Changing Table Standard

August 11, 2016

ASTM International has issued ASTM F2388 - 16 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Baby Changing Tables for Domestic Use.

Updates to the standard include:

  • New definitions for double action release mechanism and self-folding steps
  • Exemption of changing tables with self-folding steps from the Entrapment in Enclosed Openings test
  • A new locking/latching requirement and test for changing tables with self-folding steps

This standard applies to baby changing tables and other changing surfaces, such as contoured changing pads and add-on changing units that are sold separately for use on furniture products other than changing tables for children up to a weight of 30 lb (13.6 kg). 

The standard was published on July 11, 2016.
