Advocacy Comments on CPSC’s Proposal to Establish Safety Standards for Custom Window Coverings

On March 23, 2022, Advocacy submitted comments to the proposed rule published on January 7, 2022 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regarding the need to establish safety standards for operating cords on custom window coverings. Both Advocacy and small businesses are concerned for the safety of children with respect to operating cords on custom window coverings. While child safety is paramount, CPSC should do more to consider reasonable modifications to the proposed rule that would ease the burden on small businesses while still meeting the Commission’s stated objectives.
