US approves ‘tip-over’ safety standard

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received no “significant adverse comments” on its federal safety standard for clothing storage furniture and, as a result, the new standard will take effect from September 1, 2023.

The new standard is based on ASTM International’s F2057-23 voluntary standard. All US-made products within the scope of the standard with a manufacture date on or after September 1 must meet the stability and labelling requirements within the rule.
