Page Count: 8
ICS Code (Equipment for children): 97.190
scope:

1.1 This consumer safety specification covers performance requirements, test methods, and marking requirements to promote safe use of frame child carriers.

1.2 This consumer safety specification is intended to minimize the risk of injury to a child from the normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse of these products.

1.3 For purposes of definition, a frame child carrier is a product, normally of sewn fabric construction on a tubular metal or other frame, which is designed to carry a child, in an upright position, on the back of the caregiver. A frame child carrier is intended for use with a child that is able to sit upright unassisted and weigh between 16 lb (7.3 kg) and up to 40 lb (18.1 kg). The frame child carrier is intended to be worn on the back of the caregiver's body, with the carrier, and thus the child, suspended from both shoulders of the caregiver. The seated position of the child is either facing towards or away from the caregiver.

1.4 No frame child carrier produced after the approval date of this consumer safety specification shall, either by label or other means, indicate compliance with the specification unless it complies with all of the requirements contained herein.

1.5 This consumer safety specification is not intended to address incidents and injuries resulting from the interaction of other persons or objects with the caregiver and child while the frame child carrier is in use.

1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.7 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7 of this consumer safety specification. This standard may involve the use of hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
