CPSC RIN: 3041-AC10 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Petition CP 03-1/HP 03-1 Requesting a Standard for Bunk Bed Corner Posts 
Abstract: A petition from the Danny Foundation requests that the Commission establish a standard to address an alleged hazard of strangulation posed by bunk bed corner posts. The petitioner asserts that, due to the height of bunk beds, corner posts on bunk beds pose a substantial risk to children when the children's clothing, bedding, or other items become caught on the corner posts. On November 8, 2002, the Commission published a notice in the Federal Register to solicit comments on the petition from all interested persons. The comment period closed on January 7, 2003. On April 13, 2004, staff sent a briefing package to the Commission. On July 30, 2004, the Commission voted 3 to 0 to defer action on the petition while the staff continued to work with the ASTM International bunk bed subcommittee on this issue. A revised voluntary standard for bunk beds was published in October 2004. The revised standard incorporates warning language about hangings associated with bunk beds and attaching items to the bed. CPSC staff worked with the subcommittee to develop requirements beyond labeling to address strangulation hazards with vertical protrusions. A revised standard was approved on July 15, 2007. Staff will evaluate the adequacy of, and conformance to, the revised standard, and will prepare a briefing package for Commission consideration.
