On March 6, 2023, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a new Direct Final rule for 16 CFT Part 1220, which sets a mandatory safety standard for non-full-size baby cribs (NFS). 

The new rule aims to reduce the number of injuries and deaths associated with non-full-size baby cribs.

The voluntary standard ASTM F406-22 will now be a mandatory standard for non-full-size baby cribs. The new Direct Final rule is set to take effect on June 3, 2023, unless adverse comments are received by April 5, 2023.
