New Specification for Consumer Safety Specification for In-Bed Sleep Products

1. Scope

1.1.This consumer safety specification establishes performance requirements, test methods, and labeling requirements to promote the safe use of In-Bed Sleep Products. This standard does not apply to loungers, seats, swings, and similar products not intended and marketed for bedsharing. 1.2.This consumer safety specification is intended to reduce the risk of death and minimize injury to infants resulting from use and reasonably foreseeable misuse or abuse of In-Bed Sleep Products. 1.3.No In-Bed Sleep Products 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. 1.4.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. 1.5.The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.6.This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
