The Canadian government has introduced new Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations (CCBR) to ensure these products’ safety for infants and young children.
The new CCBR covers the following:
- Prohibition on the sale, importation, manufacture or advertisement of traditional drop-side cribs
- New requirements and test methods for accessories and stands that are used with cribs, cradles and bassinets
The new regulations will take effect on December 29, 2016.
