Micom Now Accredited For Safety Rule 16 CFR Part 1261

Micom now accredited for safety rule 16 CFR Part 1261

Micom Laboratories is pleased to inform you that we’ve recently received accreditation for 16 CFR Part 1261, granted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This accreditation focuses on the safety of the clothing storage units, with the aim of protecting children up to 72 months of age from death or injury due to units tipping over. The ASTM F2057 testing standard enables compliance with 16 CFR part 1261, which in turn meets the requirements of the STURDY Act.

What does it mean?

As customers, you can benefit from our experience and accreditation in the safety of this type of product. We have been duly assessed under the requirements of ISO 17025 by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to evaluate that we meet the standards set by CPSC for the evaluation of storage units, including stability, anchoring, warning labeling, and other features.

Taking advantage of our accreditation will provide access to a local source of testing to certify your products to the new regulations coming into effect next month (September 2023). It will also instill confidence in the reliability and accuracy of our tests. We follow strict protocols to ensure high-quality results. Moreover, this showcases our commitment to following CPSC guidelines for storage units, ensuring that our tests are conducted according to industry best practices. Finally, we showcase our commitment to consumer safety by investing in the prevention of tip-over accidents, while helping local industries comply with the regulatory requirements they face.

If there are additional questions regarding this new standard, please contact us. We would appreciate providing more details and collaborating with you again.
