The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register.

Final rule; correction.Start Printed Page 51178
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC” or “Commission”) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of June 4, 2010 (75 FR 31691). The document established a standard for infant bath seats by incorporating by reference ASTM F 1967-08a with certain changes. The Commission is correcting an error that left in an introductory phrase in one provision concerning the stability requirements that should have been omitted from the standard.
Effective on December 6, 2010.Start Further Info

The Commission published in the Federal Register of June 4, 2010 (75 FR 31691) a final rule establishing a standard for infant bath seats by incorporating by reference ASTM F 1967-08. An introductory phrase in the stability performance requirements in the ASTM standard should have been removed to make the provision consistent with the Commission's definition of “bath seat.” The preamble to the final rule stated: “the final rule removes the beginning phrase in section 6.1: `for bath seats which provide support for an occupant's back and support for the sides or front of the occupant or both.' Given the definition of bath seat in the final rule, this phrase is redundant, and the final rule, therefore eliminates it.” 75 FR 31696. However, the text of the standard did not remove the introductory phrase. This notice corrects that error by restating section 6.1 of ASTM F 1967-08a without the introductory phrase, and adding at the end the language the Commission is adding to this section of the ASTM standard.Start Amendment Part
In FR Doc.End Amendment Part
1. On page 31698, in the second column, in § 1215.2 Requirements for infant bath seats, paragraph (b)(2) is corrected to read, “In addition to section 6.1 of ASTM F 1967-08a, comply with the following:End Amendment Part
(i) 6.1 Stability—* * * If any time during the application of force, the seat is no longer in the initial `intended use position' and is tilted at an angle of 12 degrees or more from its initial starting position, it shall be considered a failure.”
Should be corrected to read, “Instead of section 6.1 of ASTM F 1967-08a, comply with the following:
(i) 6.1 Stability—The geometry and construction of the product shall not allow for any parts of the product to become separated from it, shall not sustain permanent damage, and shall not allow the product to tip over after being tested in accordance with 7.4. In addition, if any attachment point disengages from (is no longer in contact with) the test platform and then fails to return to its manufacturer's intended use position after being tested in accordance with 7.4, it fails the requirement. This test shall be conducted after the Mechanisms Durability test in 7.1.3. If any time during the application of force, the seat is no longer in the initial `intended use position' and is tilted at an angle of 12 degrees or more from its initial starting position, it shall be considered a failure.”Start Signature
