Chemicals of high concern to children (CHCC)

Children's product manufacturers are required to report each year if their products contain Chemicals of High Concern to Children (CHCC list) (WAC 173-334-130) under the Children's Safe Products Reporting Rule.

  • Some of these chemicals are restricted chemicals.
  • If a children’s product exceeds the limits on a restricted chemical, manufacturers cannot offer that product for sale in Washington.
