Revised Proposal to List Children’s Foam-Padded Sleeping Products Containing TDCPP or TCEP as a Priority Product
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is seeking public comment on the revised text of the proposal to list children’s foam-padded sleeping products containing the fire retardant chemicals TDCPP and/or TCEP as a Priority Product.
DTSC proposes to amend Title 22, California Code of Regulations sections 69511 and 69511.1, by establishing a Priority Products list with the addition of children’s foam-padded sleeping products containing the fire retardants tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) and/or tris(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (TCEP) as the first Priority Product. A 45-day comment period on this proposal concluded on 11/21/2016. In response to comments and input from stakeholders, DTSC revised the text of the proposed regulation to correct errors and omissions and to clarify the description of the Priority Product, the hazard traits and toxicological endpoints, and the designation of the Candidate Chemicals as the Chemicals of Concern for the Priority Product. DTSC also revised corresponding sections of the Initial Statement of Reasons. In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, DTSC is making these revised documents available for public comment.
An important part of the regulatory process is showing stakeholders how and why we made this decision.
