Title: Ban of Crib Bumpers 

On May 16, 2022, the Safe Sleep for Babies Act of 2021 designated crib bumpers as a banned hazardous product under section 8 of the Consumer Product Safety Act, effective not later than 180 days after enactment. On July 13, 2022, staff submitted to the Commission a briefing package to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to codify the ban on crib bumpers, as defined by the Safe Sleep for Babies Act of 2021. On July 19, 2022, the Commission voted to approve publication of the NPRM. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on July 26, 2022, and the comment period on the NPRM ended on August 25, 2022. In October 2022, staff submitted a draft final rule for the Commission’s consideration but the Commission voted to remove the final rule from the agenda at the request of the General Counsel. Staff will submit a revised final rule package in fiscal year 2023.
