AGENCY:

Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

In the Federal Register of April 16, 2009, 74 FR 17636, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) published a notice in accordance with provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) to announce the CPSC's intention to seek extension of approval of collections of information in the flammability standards for children's sleepwear and implementing regulations.

No comments were received in response to that notice. Therefore, by publication of this notice, the Commission announces that it has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of approval of that collection of information without change.

The standards and regulations are codified as the Standard for the Flammability of Children's Sleepwear: Sizes 0 Through 6X (FF3-71), 16 CFR Part 1615; and the Standard for the Flammability of Children's Sleepwear: Sizes 7 Through 14 (FF5-74), 16 CFR Part 1616. The flammability standards and implementing regulations prescribe requirements for testing and recordkeeping by manufacturers and importers of children's sleepwear subject to the standards. The information in the records required by the regulations allows the Commission to determine if items of children's sleepwear comply with the applicable standard. This information also enables the Commission to obtain corrective actions if items of children's sleepwear fail to comply with the applicable standard in a manner which creates a substantial risk of injury.
