Manufacturers of Clothing Storage Units: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (#CPSC) recently adopted ASTM F2057-23 (updated version of ASTM F2057), as the mandatory federal standard for clothing storage units, to meet the requirements of the STURDY Act (Stop Tipovers of Unstable, Risky Dressers on Youth). The updated standard includes several revisions aimed at improving the safety of these units, including changes to performance requirements, testing methods, and labeling. The new standard states that all clothing storage units manufactured or imported into the U.S. must comply with specific safety requirements. This revision to the standard overrides the previously issued CPSC rule and will be in force within 120 days unless there are significant adverse comments.
