Overview of Rule Amendment

Under this chapter, manufacturers of children's products must report on the presence of certain chemicals in children's products.

In October 2013 Ecology adopted amendments to the reporting rule in response to a petition to add tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl)phosphate (TDCPP) (CAS # 13674-87-8) to the list of CHCCs, and to remove n-butanol (CAS # 71-36-3) from the reporting list of chemicals.
