DTSC Poised to Submit Proposed SCPA Regulations to OAL


Posted 12/16/10

 

 

The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is nearing a decision on whether or not to formally submit its once revised package of Safer Consumer Products (SCPA) regulations  to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for final review and possible approval.  The Green Chemistry Alliance (GCA) which called for the withdrawal of the regulations in its November 1, 2010 comments was likewise critical of the post-hearing changes offered by DTSC on November 16th.  At the completion a 15-day comment period regarding the changes, GCA submitted some 35 pages of critique on December 3rd.  While acknowledging improvements over the original proposal, GCA continued to emphasis the many deficiencies in the regulation.  At the same time the environmental community leveled harsh criticism of the regulations as well as the DTSC and Governor.  More recently the representatives of the University of California at Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry called upon Governor Schwarzenegger to withdraw the regulation as they conclude the revised regulation represents a "set-back for the Green Chemistry initiative."  Read complete letter.
