(CPSC) passed a Section 104 rule for Infant Sling
19 January 2017
On January 16, 2017, Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted by a margin of 3-2, under PSL 1/2/17 and passed a Section 104 rule for Infant Sling [1] Carriers codified under 16 CFR 1112 and 1228 with one modification to F2907-15, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Sling Carriers.
The change would require that warning labels attached with sewn seams must be attached to the fabric on all sides of the tags and be visible in all use positions. Label text must use a large font size.
CPSC staff agreed that large tags sewn on only one end of the fabric are often removed by consumers and the proposed change encourages the permanence of safety labeling.
The rule will become effective 12 months after the date of publication in the Federal Register.
