State of Oregon publishes rules for reporting hazardous substances in children’s products

The state of Oregon has recently published rules for disclosing hazardous substances in children’s products. The first reporting notice is due on 1st January 2018.

 

In August 2015, the governor of Oregon signed Senate Bill 478 (SB 478), the ‘Toxic-Free Kids Act’, into law. Under this law; the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) are required to establish and maintain a list of high priority chemicals of concern for children’s health (HPCCCHs) that may be used in the manufacture of products for children under the age of 12, and to establish rules governing what manufacturers must do in order to comply with the law

 

Unless exempted, a manufacturer of children’s products containing an HPCCCH in a quantity at or above the restriction level is required to submit a notice to the OHA by 1st January  2018 and every other year thereafter.

 

According to the law, reporting is required if the HPCCCH is:

  • Intentionally added and is equal to or greater than the practical quantification limit (PQL), or
  • A contaminant that is equal to or greater than 100 ppm

 

The OHA had established an initial list of 66 HPCCCHs. This list of chemicals is identical to the list of 66 chemicals of high concern to children (CHCCs) in Washington (WAC 173-334-130) and Vermont’s list of 66 CHCCs (18 V.S.A Chapter 38A § 1773).
