New Crib Safety Standards
On December 28, 2010, the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published new safety standards for full-size and non-full-size cribs. The new safety standards became effective for manufacturers, retailers, importers, and distributers on June 28, 2011. Beginning December 28, 2012, any crib provided by child care facilities and family child care homes must meet the new standards.
