JPMA states: “Together with manufacturers and related industry partners, JPMA took the reins to effectively eliminate drop side cribs and added a crib slat integrity test based on the European standard.”

JPMA also notes that “a revised crib standard was recently balloted whose provisions include addressing issues related to hardware failure, labeling and instructional issues, an improved mattress support test, and much more.”
