Title: ●Petition for Classification of "Bee Safe System" as an Anti-Entrapment System Under the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act ("VGB Act") 
Abstract: The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (VGB Act) was signed into law on December 17, 2007 and became effective in December 2008. Section 1404(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the VGB Act requires that each public pool and spa in the United States with a single main drain other than an unblockable drain be equipped, at a minimum, with one or more of the following anti-entrapment devices or systems: (I) Safety vacuum release system; (II) Suction-limiting vent system; (III) Gravity drainage system; (IV) Automatic pump shut-off system; ((V) Drain disablement; or (VI) any other system determined by the Commission to be equally effective as, or better than, these systems at preventing or eliminating the risk of injury or death associated with pool drainage systems. The Commission received correspondence from Bonnie Snow and Teri Snow, dated February 13, 2012, requesting that the Commission initiate rulemaking to determine that the "BeeSafe System" is equally effective as, or better than, systems designed to prevent entrapment listed in section 1406(c)(1)(A)(ii)(I)-(V) of the Virginia Graeme Baker Act (VGB Act). The Commission docketed the request as a petition under the Consumer Product Safety Act and sought comments concerning the petition.
