CPSC Revised Mandatory Standard for Toddler Beds

The CPSC issued a direct final rule – Revisions to the Safety Standard for Toddler Beds, on 22 February 2017. The rule at 16 CFR Part 1217 incorporates by reference, ASTM F1821-16, Standard Consumer Safety Performance Specification for Toddler Beds.

This rule will become effective from 6 June 2017, and will apply to all toddler beds manufactured on or after that date. More information regarding the final rule is available from here.

Please note it is not required that testing laboratories that were previously CPSC-accepted for 16 CFR Part 1217 to submit a new application with the Commission. Third-party testing laboratories that were not previously CPSC-accepted for this regulation should submit an application to “request an addition to scope” through the CPSC online application here. To be considered for CPSC-acceptance, the scope of accreditation must include a specific reference to “16 CFR Part 1217”.
