Joint comments to CPSC on proposed amendments to CPSIA Sec. 104 product registration rules

Our organizations support updating the product registration rule in 16 CFR Part 1130, which pertains to Section 104 of the CPSIA. We support an effective date of 30 days after publication of a final rule, except for contoured changing pads, which should have a six-month effective date. We also recommend continued efforts to include in the regulation both additional durable infant or toddler products and improved means of product registration.
