On January 11, 2017, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted in favor of approving 16 CFR 1228, Safety Standard for Sling Carriers. The Final Rules were published in the Federal Register on January 30, 2017. The final rules will become effective January 30, 2018 and will apply to products manufactured or imported on or after the effective date.
A sling carrier is classified as a product of fabric or sewn fabric construction, which is designed to contain a child in an upright or reclined position while being supported by the caregiver’s torso. In general, the child will be between full term birth and 35 lb (15.9 kg).
The final rules adopt ASTM F2907:2015, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Sling Carriers with one modification. The modification (Section 5.7.3) states that warning labels that are attached to fabric with seams shall remain in contact with the fabric around the entire perimeter of the label when the sling is in all manufacturers’ recommended use positions.
