Safety Standard for Infant and Cradle Swings
Document Number: 2024-11792
Type: Rule
Date: 2024-05-30
Agency: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In June 2012, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published a consumer product safety standard for infant swings under section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA). The standard incorporated by reference ASTM F2088-12a, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant Swings, the voluntary standard for infant swings that was in effect at the time. Because the standard applied to both infant and cradle swings, in 2020, ASTM changed the title of the voluntary standard by adding cradle swings to the title. ASTM has now issued a revised standard, ASTM F2088-24, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant and Cradle Swings. The CPSIA sets forth a process for updating mandatory standards for durable infant or toddler products that are based on a voluntary standard, when a voluntary standards organization revises the standard. Consistent with the CPSIA update process, this direct final rule updates the mandatory standard to incorporate by reference ASTM's 2024 version of the voluntary standard. It also revises the mandatory standard to include "cradle swings" to align with the voluntary standard.
