Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is seeking comments on the proposed extension without change of information collections associated with the following.

Children’s Sleepwear. The standards for the flammability of children’s sleepwear sizes 0 through 6X and sizes 7 through 14 require manufacturers and importers to collect information resulting from product testing and maintenance of the testing records. (comments due by March 23)

Lighters. This collection consists of testing, recordkeeping and reporting requirements associated with the safety standard for cigarette lighters. In addition, manufacturers, importers and private labelers of such lighters must issue a certificate stating that they comply with this standard. (comments due by April 22)

Toys. The performance and labeling requirements for electrically operated toys and children’s articles are designed to reduce unreasonable risks of injury to children from electrical shock, electrical burns and thermal burns associated with these products. Manufacturers and importers of these goods are required to maintain records for three years on the material and production specifications, the quality assurance program used, the results of all tests and inspections conducted and sales and distribution. (comments due by March 24)

Mowers. The safety standard for walk-behind power lawn mowers sets forth regulations prescribing requirements for a reasonable testing program to support certificates of compliance with the standard. (comments due by March 24)
