Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act **UPDATE**Any determination as to whether a particular product is designed and intended for use by a child 12 years of age or younger, would be made on a case by case basis after consideration of the following factors:
-Whether the product is represented in its packaging, display, promotion or advertising as appropriate for use by the ages specified.
-Whether the product is commonly recognized by consumers as being intended for use by a child of the ages specified.
-The Age Determination Guidelines issued by the Commission staff in September 2002, and any successor to such guidelines.

In the interim, the Commission staff plans to use the definition of toy in the ASTM F963-07 toy standard for guidance.
