The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a final rule that will impose restrictions on high-powered magnet sets, essentially prohibiting the types of adult desk sets targeted by the agency in actions against the maker of Buckyballs and Buckycubes, seeking recalls of such products. Additional information about the rule appears in the September 18, 2014, issue of this Report. As of April 1, 2015, “if a magnet set contains a magnet that fits within the CPSC’s small parts cylinder, each magnet in the set must have a flux index of 50 kG2 mm2 or less. An individual magnet that is marketed or intended for use as part of a magnet set also must meet these requirements.” The rule would apply to “aggregations of separable magnetic objects that are marketed or commonly used as a manipulative or construction item for entertainment, such as puzzle working, sculpture building, mental stimulation, or stress relief.” See Federal Register, October 3, 2014.
