Background Section 104(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), Public Law 110–314, 122 Stat. 3016 (August 14, 2008), requires the Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) to promulgate consumer product safety standards for durable infant or toddler products. These standards are to be ‘‘substantially the same as’’ applicable voluntary standards or more stringent than the voluntary standard if the Commission concludes that more stringent requirements would further reduce the risk of injury associated with the product. The Commission issued safety standards for full-size and nonfull-size baby cribs in response to the direction contained in section 104(b) of the CPSIA. 1. Full-Size Cribs On December 28, 2010, the Commission published a final rule for full-size cribs that incorporated by reference ASTM F1169–10, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for FullSize Baby Cribs, with modifications. 75 FR 81766. On December 9, 2013, the Commission adopted the revised ASTM standard for full-size cribs, ASTM F1169–13, which was codified at 16 CFR part 1219. 78 FR 73692. Sections 8 and 9 of the ASTM F1169– 13 contain requirements for marking, labeling, and instructional literature that fall within the definition of ‘‘collections of information’’ at 5 C.F.R. § 1320.3(c). Section 9 of ASTM F1169–13 also requires full-size cribs to be provided with instructions regarding assembly, maintenance, cleaning, storage, and use, an assembly drawing, a list and description of all parts and tools required for assembly, and a full-size diagram of the required bolts and other fasteners, as well as a variety of warnings. 2. Non-Full-Size Cribs On December 28, 2010, in the final rule on full-size cribs, the Commission also addressed non-full-size cribs. The Commission incorporated by reference ASTM F 406–10a, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Non-Full-Size Baby Cribs, with modifications, which was codified at 16 CFR part 1220. 75 FR 81766. Sections 9 and 10 of ASTM F406–10a, contain requirements for marking, labeling, and instructional literature that E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1
