The State of Oregon has introduced Senate Bill 478 regarding high priority chemicals of concern for children's health used in children’s products. This bill requires the Oregon Health Authority to:
- Establish and maintain a list of designated high priority chemicals of concern and to periodically review and revise the list in relation to health risks;
- Post certain health information on the authority's website; and
- Mandate that manufacturers of certain children's products provide notice to authority regarding chemicals on the list and take additional actions after certain dates to comply with the notice requirement.
- If enacted, the bill would come into effect January 1, 2016.
