SG 89/24

US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has published a direct final rule to incorporate the latest version of the ASTM standard for infant and cradle swings.

 On May 30, 2024, the CPSC published a direct final rule to update 16 CFR 1223, the safety standard for infant and cradle swings. The rule incorporates the latest version ASTM F2088-24 (Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Infant and Cradle Swings) with no modifications. It will become effective on September 14, 2024, provided the CPSC does not receive significant adverse comments by July 1, 2024.

The standard defines infant and cradle swings as follows:

  • Infant swings – a swing that enables an infant in a seated position to swing or glide and is intended for use with infants from birth until the infant attempts to climb out of the swing (approximately 9 months)Cradle swings – a swing which is intended for use by an infant lying flat to swing or glide and is intended for use with infants from birth until the infant begins to push up onto their hands and knees (approximately 5 months)

A read-only copy of the standard is available in the ASTM reading room at https://www.astm.org/products-services/reading-room.html
