    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 For purposes of this consumer safety specification, an infant rocker or infant/toddler rocker is a freestanding product intended to support an occupant in a seated, reclined position and to facilitate rocking by the occupant with the aid of a caregiver or by other means. Intended occupants for infant rockers are infants who have not developed the ability to sit up unassisted (approximately 0 to 6 months of age), and infant/toddler rockers have an extended use with occupants until toddler age (approximately 21/2 years of age). Both infant and infant/toddler rockers include a restraint system.

    1.3 This specification does not cover positions or modes on products that recline to 10° or less above the horizontal or are intended primarily for sleeping. If the rocker can be converted into a product for which an ASTM standard consumer safety specification exists, the product shall meet the applicable requirements of that standard. For example, a rocker that converts to a bassinet shall also comply with the applicable requirements of Consumer Safety Specification F2194 when in a bassinet mode. This specification does not cover rockers intended for toddler only use without a restraint system, hand-held infant carriers or inclined sleep products that have the ability to rock or have a rocking mode.

    1.4 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.

    1.5 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.

    1.6 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.

    1.7 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.

    1.8 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this consumer safety 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
