Product Registration Cards Now Mandatory For Manufacturers

Filed under: In The News



After a year full of crib, stroller and play set recalls, the Consumer Product Safety Commission unanimously approved a new rule requiring manufacturers of certain infant or toddler products to establish and maintain a registration card program.

In addition to including postage-paid registration forms and keeping up-to-date records of each response, manufacturers are also now required to permanently place their name and contact information, model name and number, and the date of manufacture on each product. This set of rules affects 18 product categories including cribs, toddler beds, high chairs, bath seats, infant slings and more.

CPSC Commissioner Thomas Moore says the new rule will increase the overall effectiveness of the recall process. "...it is especially troubling when a child dies in a product that our agency has recalled because the owner of the product was unaware of the recall," Moore writes in his statement of the vote.
