Title: Safety Standard for Bassinets and Cradles 

Section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) is the Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act. This Act requires the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) to: (1) examine and assess voluntary safety standards for certain infant or toddler products, and (2) promulgate mandatory consumer product safety standards that are substantially the same as the voluntary standards or more stringent than the voluntary standards if the Commission determines that more stringent standards would further reduce the risk of injury associated with these products.  Section 104 also requires the Commission to periodically review and revise durable infant or toddler standards to ensure that such standards provide the highest level of safety for such products that is feasible.  In fiscal year 2023, staff will send a briefing package to the Commission to update the Safety Standard for Bassinets and Cradles to address hazards associated with the use of bassinets on elevated and soft surfaces, ensure bassinets provide a flat, firm sleep surface, and to provide updated and accurate warnings.
