New Requirements for Crib Safety

Beginning Dec. 28, 2012, any crib used at child care facilities and family child care homes must meet new and improved federal safety standards. The Section for Child Care Regulation will need to see the following information during inspections, to assure that cribs in child care facilities comply with 16 C.F.R. part 1219 or 16 C.F.R. part 1220.
