"As of June 19, 2019, a new federal standard for high chair safety will take effect, enabling restaurateurs to take even better care of some of their most valuable and vulnerable customers — infants and toddlers who visit with their families.

As the effective date approaches, operators are advised to review the new requirements and determine whether their current high chair inventory is compliant. The new standard involves all high chairs for home and restaurant use, both domestically made and imported into the U.S. Restaurateurs will not be required to replace existing chairs that fail to comply. But as of June 19, only compliant high chairs will be permitted for sale. Operators should be aware that some high chairs currently on the market are already compliant with the new standard but many are not."
