CPSC RIN: 3041-AD45 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Standard for Infant Sleep Products 

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 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 Commission issued an NPRM and, based on additional infant deaths in the product, also issued a Supplemental NPRM, proposing a mandatory rule with substantial modifications to the voluntary standard, to further reduce the risk of injury. Staff will review comments on the Supplemental NPRM, and continue to review incident data, and conduct research on safe sleep. Staff will present a draft final rule to the Commission in FY 2021.
