eCFR :: 16 CFR Part 1262 — Safety Standard for Magnets

The new Safety Standard for Magnets (Magnets Rule), 16 CFR part 1262, makes it unlawful to sell non-compliant magnet products manufactured after October 21, 2022. The Magnets Rule, with limited exceptions, applies to magnet products designed, marketed, or intended to be used for entertainment, jewelry (including children’s jewelry), mental stimulation, stress relief, or a combination of these purposes, and containing one or more loose or separable magnets. In order to comply with the Magnets Rule, each loose or separable magnet that fits entirely within the small parts cylinder (described in 16 CFR § 1501.4) must have a flux index of less than 50 kG2 mm2 .
