New Requirements for Crib Safety
Beginning December 28, 2012, any crib used at child care facilities and family child care homes must meet new and improved federal safety standards. The Section for Child Care Regulation will need to see the following information during inspections, to assure that cribs in child care facilities comply with 16 C.F.R. part 1219 or 16 C.F.R. part 1220.
- A tracking label or registration form for each crib indicating that the crib was manufactured after June 28, 2011.
- If a crib was manufactured prior to June 28, 2011, a Children’s Product Certificate (CPC) or test report from a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)-accepted third party lab is the preferred way to demonstrate compliance with 16 C.F.R. part 1219 or 16 C.F.R. part 1220.
For more information on federal crib safety standards, go to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website at: www.cpsc.gov/cribs.
