Consumer Product Enforcement Summary Report: Cyclical Enforcement Project 2016-2017: Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations
Fiscal Year 2016-2017
The Consumer Product Safety Program (CPSP) administers and enforces the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and regulations made under it.
The purpose of this Cyclical Enforcement (CE) project was to verify industry's compliance of bassinets which are subject to the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations.
For this project, compliance of select bassinets with the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations was determined through an inspection process, by which Health Canada inspectors requested establishments to provide laboratory testing results that show compliance to the construction, performance and labelling requirements listed under the Regulations.
Prior to initiating this CE project, the CPSP carried out a market survey to determine the presence of bassinet companies in Canada. Targets were then selected from that list of companies.
Over the course of the 2016-2017 fiscal year, test reports for 25 different products were requested. The evaluation of these resulted in 6 voluntary recalls, 2 stop distributions and 1 commitment to correct labelling violations. There were 16 instances where no corrective action was required.
Readers should consult the individual recall and safety notices, if applicable, for details of the products subject to this enforcement action.

Disclaimer: A systematic bias is applied during inspection and sampling. Products are not randomly selected but are chosen because they are deemed by the inspector to be more likely to not meet health and safety requirements due to characteristics that are observed. Due to this biased nature of sampling and the fact that sample sizes within CE projects are very small, the findings of CE projects are not intended to reflect overall market compliance unless otherwise stated. Note that these summary reports relate only to the product(s) actually tested and the specific criteria indicated. Testing by Health Canada does not represent approval or endorsement of the product(s).
