Revision of F2907-21 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Sling Carriers


This task group was established to examine and potentially redefine/clarify the scope and definitions as outlined in the F2907-19 Sling Carrier standard. 

Prior to the creation of F2907, F2236 covered all baby carriers *except* slings. Slings were never defined by 2236, and they have not been adequately defined by F2907. This has led to considerable confusion among labs and manufacturers regarding the standard under which many products fall, especially as continued innovation in the baby carrier marketplace has made product "categories" more difficult to define even informally. Examples are dual-pouch systems and carrying garments.
