    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F15.20 | Committee F15 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK63506

    1. Scope

    This consumer safety specification establishes performance requirements, test methods, and labeling requirements to promote the safe use of infant bathers. An infant bather is a stand-alone product intended to provide support of an occupant who cannot sit upright unassisted (approximately 0- 6 months) in a reclining position during bathing by a caregiver but not intended to retain water. Generally, an infant bather is used in an adult tub or in or next to a sink.


    Keywords

    infant bather; infant bath seat; infant bath tub

    Rationale

    This standard is needed to address the safety hazards associated with infant bathers as there are currently no standards for safety on these items. They are excluded from infant bath tubs and infant bath seats when in a stand-alone use.
