This consumer safety performance specification covers products intended to provide sleeping accommodations (excluding full-size cribs, non-full-size cribs, and bassinets attached to play yards or swings) for an infant up to approximately 5 months in age. Products used in conjunction with a play yard, non-full-size crib, or an infant swing are not covered by this specification.
No bassinet or cradle produced after the approval date of this consumer safety performance specification shall, either by label or other means, indicate compliance with this specification unless it conforms to all requirements contained herein.

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion Section 7 of this consumer safety performance specification. 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 requirements prior to use.
