Press release from: SGS

/ PR Agency: Sugarloaf Marketing
SGS, the world's leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a SafeGuardS covering a recent direct final rule for bedside sleepers issued by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

Direct final rule 16 CFR 1222 was published on May 9, 2023, revising the safety standard for bedside sleepers. It incorporates the latest version of ASTM F2906-23 (Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Bedside Sleepers) with a modification. The modification involves replacing references to ASTM F2194 in sections 2.1, 5.1, 5.6, 7.1 and 8.1 with the mandatory standard for bassinets and cradles, 16 CFR 1218.

A bedside sleeper is defined in the standard as:

"A rigid frame assembly that may be combined with a fabric or mesh assembly, or both, used to function as sides, ends, or floor or a combination thereof, and that is intended to provide a sleeping environment for infants and is secured to an adult bed."

Without significant adverse comments, to be received by June 8, 2023, the direct final rule will come into effect on August 5, 2023.

For more information, stakeholders are advised to review SGS's original SafeGuardS 062.23.
