CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION

16 CFR Ch. II

Regulatory Flexibility Act; Semiannual Regulatory Flexibility and 
Unified Agendas

AGENCY: Consumer Product Safety Commission.

ACTION: Publication of regulatory flexibility and unified agendas.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires each Federal 
agency to publish, twice each year, a regulatory flexibility agenda 
listing the rules expected to be proposed or promulgated which are 
likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities, including small businesses, small organizations, and 
small governmental units. In this document, the Commission publishes 
its semiannual regulatory flexibility agenda.

    Additionally, Executive Order 12866 requires each agency to 
publish an agenda of regulatory actions expected to be under 
development or review by the agency during the next year and 
provides that such an agenda may be combined with an agency's 
regulatory flexibility agenda published in accordance with the RFA.

DATES: The Commission welcomes comments on each subject area of the 
agenda, particularly from small entities. Written comments concerning 
the agenda should be received in the Office of the Secretary by June 
30, 1994.

ADDRESSES: Comments on the regulatory flexibility agenda should be sent 
to the Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, 
Washington, DC 20207, telephone (301) 504-0800, and should be titled 
``Regulatory Flexibility Agenda.''

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information on the agenda 
in general, contact: Allen F. Brauninger, Office of the General 
Counsel, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207; 
telephone (301) 504-0980. For further information regarding a 
particular item on the agenda, consult the individual listed in the 
column headed ``Contact'' for that particular item.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 
U.S.C. 601-612) contains several provisions intended to reduce 
unnecessary and disproportionate regulatory requirements on small 
businesses, small governmental organizations, and other small entities. 
Section 602 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 602) requires each agency to publish, 
twice each year, a regulatory flexibility agenda containing a brief 
description of the subject area of any rule expected to be proposed or 
promulgated which is likely to have a ``significant economic impact'' 
on a ``substantial number'' of small entities. The agency must also 
provide a summary of the nature of the rule and a schedule for acting 
on each rule for which the agency has issued a notice of proposed 
rulemaking. The regulatory flexibility agenda shall also contain the 
name and address of the agency official knowledgeable about the items 
listed. Further, agencies are required to provide notice of their 
agendas to small entities and to solicit their comments by direct 
notification or by inclusion in publications likely to be obtained by 
such entities.

    Additionally, Executive Order 12866 requires each agency to 
publish, twice each year, a regulatory agenda of regulations under 
development or review during the next year and states that such an 
agenda may be combined with the agenda published in accordance with 
the RFA.

    The regulatory flexibility agenda published below lists the 
regulatory activities expected to be under development or review 
during the next 12 months. It includes all such activities, whether 
or not they may have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.

    The agenda contains a brief description and summary of each 
regulatory activity, including the objectives and legal basis for 
each; an approximate schedule of target dates, subject to revision, 
for the development or completion of each activity; and the name 
and telephone number of a knowledgeable agency official concerning 
particular items on the agenda. All agency contacts have the same 
address: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Washington, DC 20207.

Dated: March 10, 1994.

Sadye E. Dunn,

Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission.

4629. RULE TO BAN CERTAIN CRIB TOYS

Legal Authority:  15 USC 1261 Federal Hazardous Substances Act; 15 USC 
1262 Federal Hazardous Substances Act; 15 USC 2079(a) Consumer Product 
Safety Act

CFR Citation:  16 CFR 1500.18

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: In the Federal Register of October 19, 1990, the Commission 
published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking to consider whether 
certain crib toys may present an unreasonable risk of strangulation 
deaths and injuries to young children. Crib toys are toys which are 
intended to be attached to or near a crib or playpen for use by 
children younger than two years of age. On September 21, 1993, the 
staff transmitted a briefing package to the Commission concerning the 
issue of whether to propose a rule to ban certain crib toys. On October 
26, 1993, the Commission voted to terminate this proceeding. The staff 
is preparing a notice for approval by the Commission to withdraw the 
ANPRM published in 1990. Publication of that notice is expected in 
April, 1994.

4630. AMENDMENT OF FLAMMABILITY STANDARDS FOR CHILDREN'S SLEEPWEAR

Significance:
Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  15 USC 1193 Flammable Fabrics Act; 15 USC 2079(b)

Abstract: On January 13, 1993, the Commission published an advance 
notice of proposed rulemaking to begin a proceeding which could result 
in amendments of the flammability standards for children's sleepwear 
garments in sizes 0 through 14, and to fabrics intended for use in such 
garments. The standards were issued to eliminate or reduce unreasonable 
risks of deaths and burn injuries to children associated with ignition 
of sleepwear garments. The regulatory alternatives under consideration 
include amendment of the standards to exclude tight-fitting sleepwear 
garments and garments for infants from the requirements of the 
standards.
