U.S. CPSC Publishes Direct Final Rule for Infant Swings

Sep. 21 2022

On Tuesday September 20, 2022, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff published within the Federal Register a Direct Final Rule for 16 CFR Part 1223, Safety Standard for Infant Swings. 16 CFR Part 1223 will now reference ASTM F2088-22, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant and Cradle Swings as mandatory with no modifications. 

The previous version of the 16 CFR 1223 referenced the ASTM F2088-21 with no modifications. The F2088-22 version includes additional warning language for battery operated swings, a revision to the swing warning regarding sleeping babies, plus other editorial changes. 

This Direct Final Rule will become effective January 1, 2023 unless the CPSC receives any significant or adverse comments by October 20, 2022.
