Rule Details

Rule Number: 18P066
Title: Chemicals of High Concern in Children's Products Rule.
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Department of Health, Agency of Human Services
Legal Authority: 3 V.S.A. § 801(b)(11); and 18 V.S.A. § 1776.
Summary: This proposal refines the requirement for the disclosure and reporting of toxic substances that are intentionally added to a children's project. This rule also amends the list of Chemicals of High Concern to Children by adding 20 chemicals that must be reported by manufacturers of children's products. There are also 'housekeeping' emendations that provide clarity.
Persons Affected: Manufacturers of children's products, Department of Health, Children's product retailers, and consumers and users of children's products.
Economic Impact: This rule imposes a minimal economic burden to the regulated community beyond the existing statutory requirements. There will be a deminimis cost associated with the reporting fee required by statute when a listed chemical is used in children's products. (As of October 2018, the fee is $200 per listed chemical, per manufacturer.) If a manufacturer used every new chemical listed, and did not meet an exemption such as having a chemical control program, the cost would be $4,000 every two years.
