Document Summary: 
DTSC proposes to list Spray Polyurethane Foam Systems with Unreacted Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanates as a Priority Product in regulation because workers and consumers could be exposed to unreacted methylene diphenyl diisocyanates during normal use of spray polyurethane foam systems. Inhalation and dermal exposure to unreacted MDI is associated with adverse health effects, including asthma and allergic sensitization. People who become sensitized to MDI may also experience life-threatening asthma attacks when subsequently exposed to extremely lo

Document Summary: 
Nail salon workers have daily exposure to chemicals in nail products and may have longer work days and work weeks compared to employees in other sectors. Nail products in salons and at home have the potential to expose sensitive subpopulations such as workers, pregnant women (including their fetuses), and children to harmful chemicals. DTSC has identified formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene, as well as a list of other Candidate Chemicals in nails products that warrant further research. Salon workers and product users inhale or dermally

Document Summary: 
The Priority Products Work Plan prioritized product categories containing chemicals that may adversely impact aquatic resources or that have been observed through water quality monitoring. DTSC has identified nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) and triclosan as Candidate Chemicals that warrant further research. These chemicals and their transformation products are found in California aquatic environments and have associated hazards. While these chemicals are not the only Candidate Chemicals that have aquatic impacts, DTSC is focusing on them first d

Document Summary: 
California’s Safer Consumer Products (SCP) Program challenges product designers and manufacturers to reduce toxic chemicals in their products. The SCP regulations establish innovative approaches for responsible entities to identify, evaluate, and adopt better alternatives. The SCP approach requires an Alternatives Analysis (AA) that considers important impacts throughout the product’s life cycle and follows up with specific actions to make the product safer. The Department prepared the Draft Alternatives Analysis Guide to help responsible entit

Document Summary: 
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

Document Summary: 
DTSC has identified the class of chemicals called perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) as Candidate Chemicals that warrant further research. These chemicals are used in consumer products, including in carpets, rugs, and indoor upholstered furniture resistant to stains, oil, soil, or water. The manufacture, use, and disposal of PFASs-treated consumer products can lead to widespread PFASs exposure to people, animals, and plants. Some PFASs are known to have the potential to cause adverse human health and ecological impacts; other

Document Summary: 
This work plan identifies and describes the product categories that will be evaluated during the next 3 years. The work plan includes a general explanation of the processes used to select the listed product categories. It is intended to provide a level of predictability to manufacturers and other responsible entities, and to California consumers about the range of product-chemical combinations that DTSC will be evaluating for potential inclusion on the Priority Products list.
