CPSC Extends Comment Periods for Proposed Safety Standards on Gas Furnaces and Table Saws
On December 11, 2023, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) published comment period extensions for two proposed safety standards.
Written comments on the notice of proposed rulemaking establishing a safety standard for residential gas furnaces and boilers are now due by January 25, 2024.
Written comments on the supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking establishing a safety standard addressing blade-contact injuries on table saws are now due by February 1, 2024.
Small businesses are encouraged to comment on both proposed rules. Comments should provide detailed information on the rules’ direct cost implications and whether any regulatory alternatives would minimize the economic impact on small entities.
