SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

In the Federal Register of June 21, 2010 (75 FR 35266), the Commission published a final rule establishing a standard for infant walkers pursuant to section 104(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. The final rule contained two errors which the Commission is now correcting.

The first correction pertains to § 1216.2(b)(11)(i) regarding the position of the walker's wheels during testing. The first sentence in § 1216.2(b)(11)(i) refers to “Plane B,” but the last sentence in the same section refers, incorrectly, to “Plane A” (see 75 FR at 35275 (col. 3) through 35276 (col. 2)). The Commission is correcting the rule to refer to “Plane B” in the last sentence.

Another provision, at § 1216.2(b)(21)(i), concerning a warning statement for walkers with parking brakes omitted a phrase indicating that the warning is only required for walkers that have parking brakes. The preamble to the final rule correctly noted that the warning is to apply if a walker has a parking brake (see 75 FR at 35271). This document makes the necessary corrections.
