FINAL RULE: June 6, 2012
On September 20, 2011, the Commission issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) to establish a safety standard for play yards. The NPR proposed incorporating by reference the requirements for play yards in the ASTM International voluntary standard ASTM F 406-11, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Non-Full-Size Baby Cribs/Play Yards, with certain changes to specific provisions in the voluntary standards in order to strengthen the proposed rule. This briefing package provides staff’s responses to the comments on the NPR, as well as staff’s recommendations regarding the final rule, and presents a final regulatory flexibility analysis to evaluate the possible economic impact of the staff-recommended final rule on small businesses.
