New Federal Regulations On The Way For Baby Changing Tables | Stamford Moms

New federal safety standards are on the way for baby changing products. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission approved the changes for products including changing tables, changing table accessories, add-on changing units and contoured changing pads.

Specifically, the Commission proposed more stringent requirements than those currently in place for structural integrity, restraint systems, warnings on labels, and instructional literature.

The regulations are meant to address potential hazards associated with baby changing products. CPSC says it is aware of seven fatal incidents to children under 3 years old, involving one of these products, between January 1, 2005 and November 30, 2017.

The new rules take effect June 26, 2019 and will apply to products for domestic or residential use, imported or manufactured after that. The new requirements do not apply to changing products in public facilities.
