Input Sought on Petition to Amend Warning Label Requirement for Lawn Mowers

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is seeking comments by 10 June on a petition from the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry requesting a revision to the warning label requirement in the safety standard for walk-behind power lawn mowers. Specifically, OPEI is requesting that the standard be amended to allow for a pictorial-only warning as an alternative to the warning label for reel-type and rotary power mowers required by 16 CFR 1205.6(a) (Figure 7). According to OPEI, a pictorial-only warning will help provide consumers with understandable, non-language warnings to improve consumer safety and also modernise and globally harmonise the warning for all consumers. OPEI contends that the petition seeks a limited, non-material change to the CPSC standard.
