Crib Requirements

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recently implemented new requirements for full size and non-full size cribs.  Cribs being sold after June 28, 2011 must meet these new requirements and child care facilities must meet the new requirements as of December 31, 2012.  The Child Care Licensing program will be updating requirements for cribs and will require that the new standards be met by December 31, 2012.  It is strongly recommended that providers look into whether their cribs will meet the new CPSC requirements and if necessary start planning to replace cribs.  Information on these changes can be found on the Child Care Guide or at http://www.cpsc.gov/info/cribs/index.html.
