CPSC RIN: 3041-AD23 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Petition on Crib Bumpers 
Abstract: The Commission received correspondence from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), dated May 9, 2012, requesting that the Commission initiate rulemaking to distinguish and regulate ''hazardous pillow-like'' crib bumpers from ''non-hazardous traditional'' crib bumpers under sections 7 and 9 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). On June 6, 2012, the request was docketed as a petition (CP 12-2) under the Consumer Product Safety Act. 15 U.S.C. 2056 and 2058. The petitioner asserts that, despite information to the contrary regarding the safety of "traditional" crib bumpers, some are advocating banning all bumpers from the marketplace. Petitioner believes that banning "traditional" bumpers may lead caregivers to add unsafe soft bedding to cribs to serve as a protective barrier from the tight dimensions and hard wooden surface of the crib slats. On June 25, 2012, the Commission published a notice in the Federal Register to solicit comments on the petition. The comment period ended on August 24, 2012. Staff is reviewing the comments and will prepare a briefing package for Commission consideration.
