Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is seeking by April 18 information regarding the safety benefits of crib bumpers, whether safety hazards are associated with crib bumpers, existing safety standards that apply to crib bumpers, and potential performance requirements, testing and other standards that may reduce the risk of any injury associated with crib bumpers. The CPSC has granted a petition to initiate rulemaking regarding crib bumpers and, to determine the need for and appropriate scope of such a rulemaking, is investigating whether these goods pose a safety hazard to infants and, if so, what performance standards or requirements could mitigate that risk. The Commission is requesting input on specific issues to supplement the information it already has.
