CPSC Issues Final Rule to Remove Safety Standard for Magnet Sets from CFR
March 7, 2017, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a final rule in Federal Register, 82 FR 12716. The final rule removes the Code of Federal Regulations, 16 CFR 1240 Safety Standard for Magnet Sets.
CPSC published the Safety Standard for Magnet Sets to establish requirements for magnet sets and individual magnets marketed to be used with or as magnet sets on October 3, 2014. On December 2, 2014, Zen Magnets LLC (Zen) filed a petition in the Tenth Circuit United States Court of Appeals challenging the standard. The Tenth Circuit concluded that the CPSC’s rule has provided incomplete and inadequately explained findings.
