Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is accepting comments through Jan. 6 on the proposed extension of approval of information collections associated with the safety standards for infant bath seats and mattresses and mattress pads.

Bath Seats. In July 2012 the CPSC adopted the revised ASTM standard for infant bath seats, ASTM F1967-11a, which requires (a) the name of the manufacturer, distributor or seller and either the place of business (city, state and mailing address, including zip code) or telephone number or both, (b) a code mark or other means that identifies the date (month and year, as a

minimum) of manufacture, and (c) instructions regarding assembly, maintenance, cleaning, storage and use, as well as warnings.

Mattresses. The Standard for the Flammability of Mattresses and Mattress Pads (16 CFR part 1632) and the Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattress Sets (16 CFR part 1633) establish testing and recordkeeping requirements for manufacturers and importers subject to the standards.
