On December 4, 2017, the CPSC Published a Final Rule Adopting With Minor Modifications ASTM F963 for Toys (16 CFR 1250)

DATES: This final Rule will become effective on February 28, 2018 unless the CPSC receives substantial adverse comments by January 3, 2018. 

Background: Earlier this year, the Commission published a Direct Final Rule adopting ASTM F963-16 as the CPSC Safety Standard for Toys.  ASTM has now published a revised Standard Consumer Safety Specifications for Toy Safety, F963-17.  The CPSC is adopting the revised ASTM F963 Standard as 16 CFR 1250 with the exception of the addition of text in Section 8.20.1.5 (5) because it reduces toy safety.
