Start Preamble


Consumer Product Safety Commission.


Correcting amendments.


On February 25, 2020, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) issued a direct final rule revising CPSC's mandatory standard for portable bed rails to incorporate by reference the most recent version of the applicable ASTM standard. That document contained typographical errors. In this document, we correct those errors, provide an additional option for viewing the standard, and add new contact information, which will provide the public several ways to contact CPSC, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Effective July 8, 2020.
