Title: Standard for Infant Bouncer Seats 

Section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) requires the Commission to issue consumer product safety standards for durable infant or toddler products. The Commission is directed to assess the effectiveness of applicable voluntary standards, and in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, promulgate consumer product safety standards that are substantially the same as the voluntary standard or more stringent than the voluntary standard if the Commission determines that more stringent standards would further reduce the risk of injury associated with the product. The CPSIA requires that not later than August 14, 2009, the Commission begin rulemaking for at least two categories of durable infant or toddler products and promulgate two such standards every six months thereafter. The Commission proposed a consumer product safety standard for infant bouncer seats as part of this series of standards for durable infant and toddler products. Staff sent an NPRM briefing package for Commission consideration on September 30, 2015. On October 9, 2015, the Commission voted to publish the proposed rule. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on October 19, 2015, with a comment closing date of January 4, 2016. Staff is reviewing the comments and will submit a briefing package and draft Final Rule for Commission consideration.
