Commissioners Enact Window Coverings Rule To Save Lives

November 02, 2022

Today, the Commission voted on a final rule to stop window coverings from strangling children  to death. All four Commissioners came together on a bipartisan amendment to put this rule in  force more quickly to save more children’s lives. While industry asked for more time, they  failed to demonstrate the need for it. This is a problem that industry has known about since at  least 1983 and refused to fix on its own. We are not about to give them more time. The  additional months of profits industry seeks for selling dangerous products are not worth the cost  of children’s lives. CPSC will continue to create and enforce vital safety regulations as quickly  as possible.
