Draft report on regulatory determinations

Safer Products for Washington

Nov. 17, 2021 - Jan. 14, 2022, 11:59 p.m.

The Safer Products for Washington program invites the public, industry stakeholders, community organizations, non-profits, and all interested parties to review and comment on our report identifying draft regulatory actions to address toxic chemicals in consumer products.

We want to hear from you!

The 60-day comment period is open from Nov. 17, 2021 through Jan. 14, 2022. 

How to submit comments

We welcome your feedback, data, or other information to help us ensure this effort is based on public and stakeholder input and the most complete science and information. We will consider ALL comments, regardless of how they are submitted.

Background

Chapter 70A.350 RCW gives us, in consultation with the Department of Health, the authority to regulate classes of chemicals in consumer products, aiming to protect public health and the environment. Our implementation program is called Safer Products for Washington. In the draft report, we outline our draft regulatory actions and share the results of our research that supports these actions.

The potential regulatory actions are based on the availability of safer alternatives, and the potential for these products to expose people and the environment to priority toxic chemicals. We’ll use our rulemaking process to collaborate with stakeholders and the public on the specific details related to these draft regulatory determinations that include restrictions and reporting requirements.
