Clothing Storage Unit Regulatory Update: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) updated 16 CFR 1261
The updated standard includes revisions aimed at improving the safety of clothing storage units regarding performance, testing, and labeling. Under the new standard, all clothing storage units manufactured or imported into the United States must comply with the revised requirements. This includes free-standing clothing storage units such as dressers, chests, and armoires, that are 27 inches or greater in height, are 30 pounds or greater in weight and contain 3.2 cubic feet or greater of enclosed storage volume.
