    1. Scope

    1.1 This consumer safety specification covers establishment of requirements, test methods, and marking requirements to promote safe use of the rocker by an occupant and a caregiver.

    1.2 This specification does not cover rockers intended for toddler only use without a restraint system, hand-held infant carriers, or sleep products that have the ability to rock or have a rocking mode.

    1.3 This consumer safety specification is intended to minimize the risk of injury to an occupant resulting from normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse or abuse of an infant or infant/toddler rocker.

    1.4 No rocker produced after the approval date of this consumer safety specification shall, either by label or other means, indicate compliance with this specification unless it conforms to all requirements contained herein.

    1.5 This consumer safety specification is not intended to address incidents and injuries resulting from the interaction of other persons with the occupant in the product or the incidents resulting from abuse or misuse by other children.

    1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.7 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 7, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
