CPSC RIN: 3041-AD30 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Petition Requesting a Ban or Standard on Adult Portable Bed Rails 
Abstract: The Commission received two requests, one from consumer advocate Gloria Black, the Consumer Federation of America, and 60 other organizations; and the second from Public Citizen, asking that the Commission initiate proceedings under section 8 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) to determine that adult portable bed rails pose an unreasonable risk of injury and initiate related rulemaking under section 9 of the CPSA. Because both requests ask for rulemaking concerning the same product, the Commission is considering them as a single request, which was docketed as Petition CP 13-1 on May 15, 2013. Petitioners assert that adult portable bed rails are responsible for many injuries and deaths among users, particularly the elderly and frail, resulting from asphyxiation caused by entrapment within openings of the rail or between the rail and the mattress or bed frame. On May 21, 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 June 4, 2013. The comment period closed on August 5, 2013. Following review of the comments, staff will prepare for Commission consideration a briefing package on the petition.
