Title: Safety Standard for Magnets 

Based on direction in the Commission's Fiscal Year 2021 Operating Plan, staff submitted a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) briefing package to the Commission on October 6, 2021, to address the internal interaction hazard associated with ingestion of small, powerful magnets. On December 14, 2021, the Commission voted to approve publication of the NPRM. On January 10, 2022, the NPRM was published in the Federal Register , seeking comments and initiating rulemaking under the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2051-2089). The written comment period on the NPRM closed on March 28, 2022. On February 2, 2022, staff submitted to the Commission a draft notice announcing the opportunity for interested parties to make oral comments on the NPRM. On February 8, 2022, the Commission voted to approve publication of the oral comment notice. The oral comment notice was published in the Federal Register on February 15, 2022, indicating that requests to present at the oral hearing had to be provided by February 23, 2022. The Commission held the hearing on March 2, 2022. After reviewing comments on the NPRM and incident data, among other considerations, staff will complete a final rule briefing package.
