On August 19, 2013, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published the final rule in the Federal Register revising the safety standard for play yards (16 CFR 1221). The final rule will become effective February 19, 2014, and apply to play yards manufactured on and after that date.
This final rule revises 16 CFR 1221 to replace the existing requirements for play yards, ASTM F406-12a, with the updated version of the standard, ASTM F406-13. The revision of ASTM F406-13 now addresses the hazard associated with misassembling the bassinet accessory attachment components of a play yard as follows:
The final rule continues to exclude from the CPSC's play yard standard the provisions in ASTM F406 that apply to non-full-size cribs.
