On June 26, 2018, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted in favor of approving 16 CFR 1237, Safety Standard for Booster Seats. The Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on July 2, 2018. The Final Rule will become effective January 2, 2020 and will apply to products manufactured or imported on or after the effective date.
A booster seat is defined as a juvenile chair, which is placed on an adult chair to elevate a child to standard dining table height. The booster seat is made for the purpose of containing a child, up to 5 years of age, and normally for the purposes of feeding or eating. A booster seat may be height adjustable and include a reclined position.
The Final Rule adopts ASTM F2640-18, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Booster Seats with no modifications.
