Washington state is a leader in reducing and eliminating the use of toxic chemicals in consumer products. We oversee and implement many of these laws.
The 2018 Washington Legislature has delayed the implementation of a ban on the sale of copper-based antifouling paints until 2021. During this time, Ecology will study the environmental impacts of alternatives to copper-based antifouling paints, and will report its findings to the Legislature by September 2019.
Please contact Kimberly Goetz at 360-407-6754 or email@example.com if you have questions about the legislation or other related issues.
