What Information Do I Need to Report?

You must report four pieces of information for your children's products containing one or more of the Chemicals of High Concern to Children (CHCC):

Product category: submit one report for all products that fit into a single category.
Check Ecology's guidance on PRODUCT CATEGORIES that are covered by the law.

Product component: indicate which component(s) contain a CHCC.
Check Ecology's guidance on PRODUCT COMPONENTS for details.

Chemical (or CHCC) Concentration: report the highest amount of each CHCC found in a product component. You can report RANGES rather than the exact amount, based on test results or manufacturing knowledge.
Report the highest amount that would be found in the product component for each product category.
  • If the CHCC is intentionally added, you must report any amount above the PRACTICAL QUANTITATION LIMIT (PQL)
  • If the CHCC is present as a contaminant, you must report any amount above 100 parts per million (ppm), unless the manufacturer has a manufacturing control program in place and exercises DUE DILIGENCE to minimize the level of the contaminant.
Chemical Function: FUNCTION of the CHCC in the product component.
