Title: Furniture Tip Overs: Clothing Storage Units 

Based on direction in the Fiscal Year 2016 Operating Plan, staff submitted a briefing package to the Commission in September 2016, addressing furniture tip overs and focused, specifically, on clothing storage unit (CSU) tip overs. CPSC is aware of fatal and non-fatal incidents involving CSUs tipping over. The majority of incidents involve children. In November 2017, the Commission issued an ANPRM, seeking comments and initiating rulemaking under the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2051-2089). Staff is currently reviewing comments and conducting product testing and working with ASTM to update its voluntary standard. Staff is working on an NPRM briefing package for the Commission's consideration.
