  3. US: CPSC publishes final rule for safety standard of infant bath tub - 16 CFR 1234
    On 30 March 2017, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) approved 16 CFR 1234, Safety Standard for Infant Bath Tubs in the Federal Register[1] and it will come into force on 2 October 2017. 
    An infant bath tub is defined as a tub, enclosure, or other similar product intended to hold water and be placed into an adult bath tub, sink, or on top of other surfaces to provide support or containment, or both, for an infant in a reclining, sitting, or standing position during bathing by a caregiver. 
    The final rule incorporates by reference the most recent voluntary standard, developed by ASTM International, ASTM F2670?17[2], without modification and which covers the performance requirements, test methods, and labeling requirements to promote the safe use of infant bath tubs.
