What are the defects?

Canterbury Cot does not comply with the mandatory Australian standard AS/NZS 2172:2003. There were multiple failures but the most concerning breaches relate to the strength of the access fastening device, which could be inadvertently lowered making it possible for a child to open the side of the cot.

What are the hazards?

The cot fails to comply with the safety and performance, design, informative labelling and marking requirements of the mandatory standard. The product poses numerous risks, in particular the risk of falls, suffocation and entrapment.
