CPSC Consults on Safety Standards for Children’s Play Yards

October 16, 2015

UNITED STATES - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is seeking comments on its safety standards for children’s play yards (OMB No. 3041-0152).

The Commission issued a safety standard for play yards (16 CFR Part 1221) on August 19, 2013 (78 FR 50328). The standard is intended to address hazards to children associated with the misassembly of play yards and play yard accessories. Among other requirements, the standard requires manufacturers, including importers, to meet the collection of information requirements for marking, labeling, and instructional literature for play yards.

Published in the Federal Register on October 1, 2015, the comment period is open until November 1, 2015.
