CPSC RIN: 3041-AD31 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: ●Petition for Rulemaking to Eliminate Accessible Cords on Window Covering Products 
Abstract: The Commission received a petition from a group of nine organizations representing consumer groups, safety constultants, and legal counsel: Parents for Window Blind Safety, Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union, Kids in Danger, Public Citizen, U.S. PIRG, Independent Safety Consulting, Safety Behavior Analysis, Inc., and Onder, Shelton, O'Leary & Peterson. The petition requested that the Commission initiate proceedings to promulgate a mandatory standard to eliminate accessible cords on window covering products. The request was docketed on June 26, 2013, as Petition CP 13-2, under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). The petition asserts that a mandatory rule is necessary because attempts to develop a voluntary standard that adequately mitigates the risk of injury associated with window covering cords have been unsuccesssful. On July 2, 2013, the Commission voted unanimously to approve publication in the Federal Register of a notice soliciting comments on the petition. The notice was published on July 15, 2013. The comment period closes on September 13, 2013. Following review of the comments, staff will prepare for Commission consideration a briefing package on the petition.
