Title: Rule Review of: Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattress Sets(Section 610 Review) 

The Commission published the Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattress Sets in March 2006. The Standard sets open flame performance measures on all mattress sets entered into commerce on or after the effective date in July 2007. The purpose of the rule review is to assess the impact of the rule on small entities and to determine whether the rule should be continued without change, or should be amended or rescinded to make the rule more effective or less burdensome while still maintaining safety objectives. CPSC staff solicited comments on the rule through a Federal Register Notice. Staff also conducted economic and fire loss data analyses to review the impact and effectiveness of the rule. A staff briefing package is being developed and will be submitted to the Commission.
