Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is accepting comments through July 7 on the proposed extension of approval of information collections relating to the safety standards for bicycle helmets and toddler beds.

Bicycle helmets – The standard includes requirements for labeling and instructions. It also requires that manufacturers and importers of bicycle helmets subject to the standard issue certificates of compliance based on a reasonable testing program. Testing must be conducted for each new production lot and the test records must be maintained for three years. Every person issuing certificates of compliance must maintain certain records.

Toddler beds – The standard requires manufacturers, including importers, to meet the information collection requirements for marking, labeling and instructional literature.
