The tested specimen must meet the criteria under §1633.3(b) before any mattress sets based on the qualified prototype may be sold or introduced into commerce.

(b) Confirmation test failure. (1) If the confirmation test specimen fails to meet the criteria of §1633.3(b), the manufacturer thereof shall not sell any mattress set based on the same qualified prototype until that manufacturer takes corrective measures, tests a new specimen, and the new specimen meets the criteria of §1633.3(b).

(2) If a confirmation test specimen fails to meet the criteria of §1633.3(b), the manufacturer thereof must notify the manufacturer of the prototype of the test failure.
