Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant Inclined Sleep Products
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
This consumer safety specification establishes safety performance requirements, test methods, and labeling requirements to minimize the hazards to infants presented by infant inclined sleep products as identified in the introduction.
This consumer safety specification is intended to minimize the risk of injuries to infants resulting from normal use and reasonably foreseeable misuse or abuse of infant inclined sleep products.
This consumer safety performance specification covers a free standing product with an inclined sleep surface primarily intended and marketed to provide sleeping accommodations for an infant up to 5 months old or when the infant begins to roll over or pull up on sides, whichever comes first. It also covers a smaller product intended for newborns up to 3 months old or when newborn begins to wiggle out of position or turn over in the product or weighs more than 15 lb (6.8 kg), whichever comes first. It also covers infant and newborn inclined sleep product accessories, which are attached to, or supported by, another product with the same age or abilities, or both, as the free standing products. If the inclined sleep product can be converted into a product for which another ASTM standard consumer safety specification exists, the product shall meet the applicable requirements of that standard. For example, an inclined sleep product that can have the recline angle adjusted below 10° shall also comply with the applicable requirements of Consumer Safety Specification F2194.
No infant inclined sleep product produced after the approval date of this consumer safety 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 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 limitations prior to use.
