|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
1.1 This consumer safety specification establishes design requirements for corner posts of full-size and non-full-size baby cribs (Note 1) to minimize the potential for strangulation of infants and young children who may attempt to climb out of the crib. It also provides information in the instructions furnished with cribs of the potential hazard to children wearing pacifiers, necklaces, or any other items around their necks.
NOTE 1--The terms "full-size" and "non-full-size" cribs are those used in the mandatory requirements for these products that were promulgated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and published in the Code of Federal Regulations as 16 CFR Parts 1508 and 1509.
