On Tuesday, September 24, 2019, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published within the Federal Register an amendment to 16 CFR 1130, Requirements for Consumer Registration of Durable Infant or Toddler Products.
16 CFR 1130 is a federal reference from the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, section 104(d) that mandates registration cards for durable infant/toddler products. The original requirement became effective in 2009. There was a minor revision to 16 CFR 1130 in 2012.
Recent change to 16 CFR 1130 include:
• Updating the definition of a “Durable Infant or Toddler Product” to state the full statutory definition as written within section 104(f) of the CPSIA and to include a statement that each product is further defined within their approved ASTM standards.
• Listing sling carriers, soft infant/toddler carriers, handheld infant carriers and frame child carriers as a subset of infant carriers. Currently, the regulation only states “infant carriers.”
• Clarifying bedside sleepers to be a subset of bassinets.
• Revising the term “changing tables” to “baby changing products.” Due to this change, contoured changing pads are now under the scope 16 CFR 1130 and will require a registration card as of the effective date specified.
The effective date for the revised Final Rule has been set for October 24, 2019 for the products that were already covered.
The effective date for contoured changing pads has been set for September 24, 2020
