Children's Safe Products reporting rule guidance

The Children’s Safe Products Reporting Rule identifies what information manufacturers must report annually. Manufacturers must report the presence and use of certain chemicals in children's products offered for sale in Washington. Find out if, how, and what you need to report.

The next reporting deadline is January 31, 2020. There are no fees for reporting children's products in Washington state. 

Our reporting database is currently down

The Interstate Chemical Clearinghouse (IC2) is releasing a new reporting database that allows you to file one report for multiple states. This new database includes Washington and Oregon, with more states coming soon. While IC2 finishes building the new system, Washington's current database will be unavailable during October and the first part of November of 2019.

When can I start reporting to the new database?

We will let you know when you can start reporting in IC2’s database. The anticipated launch date is in mid-November. Sign up for our listserv to be notified!

Where is my old data?

Your previous reporting data will be in the new system. If you have a confidentiality claim, it will be honored and transferred over.

Do I need to report?

If you are unsure if you have to report, review the reporting requirements or answer these four questions to find out:

If you answered yes to all four questions, follow the instructions to register and report.

If you answered no to any of these questions, you do not have to register or report under CSPA at this time. However, requirements can change. Sign up for our ListServ to stay informed and receive updates.

Manufacturers must report four pieces of information for children's products containing one or more of the Chemicals of High Concern to Children (CHCCs).
