Agency: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On April 20, 2020, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) issued a direct final rule revising CPSC's mandatory standard for sling carriers to incorporate by reference the most recent version of the applicable ASTM standard. That document omitted an ASTM contact phone number. This document adds an ASTM contact telephone number. Additionally, that document contained a CPSC telephone number that is now inactive. To ensure that the public will be able to contact CPSC, in this document, we provide a correct telephone number and add an email contact, which will provide the public several ways to contact CPSC, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
