    The High Chair Subcommittee is proposing a change to the standard to exempt high chairs for use only for children who cannot sit upright unassisted and who weigh less than 20 lbs. (9.1 kg) or less from the stability test requirements. The subcommittee believes that this exemption should be temporary until new stability requirements can be developed. The subcommittee has directed a task group to work to develop appropriate stability test requirements for reclined infant seats to be added to the standard and also requested that a task group review and recommend any appropriate testing for those types of high chairs.
