Two Changes Made to Children's Product Chemical List

December 18, 2013

The Washington Department of Ecology has adopted changes to the Children's Safe Product Act reporting list, which specifies the chemicals of high concern that children's product manufacturers must report on under the law.

Chlorinated tris flame retardant (tris[1,3-dichloro-2-propyl]phosphate) (TDCPP) has been added to the list, while the chemical solvent n-butanol has been removed from the list. TDCPP is added to polyurethane foams as a flame retardant, and n-butanol is used in a wide range of consumer products.
