The next round of juvenile product category ASTM meetings will take place January 17-18, 2017 at ASTM Headquarters in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Please visit www.astm.org for the full schedule of meetings, hotel information and the link to register. Remember: It is free to register, but you must register to attend! Participation by phone is also an option. Agenda packets will be distributed by email this week.
Involvement in this consensus-based activity is the best way that manufacturers can stay abreast of the changes being implemented, as well as helping guide the process so that individual products will remain in compliance. ASTM standards are not only the foundation of the JPMA Certification 2.0 Program but also of the federal requirements pertaining to juvenile products, known as Section 104 Rules.
