DTSC Releases 6th Iteration Informal Safer Consumer Regulations


10/31/12

 

Since the passage of the Green Chemistry legislation in Sept 2008, DTSC has prepared six iterations of regulations designed to implement the legislation.  They include two "straw" proposals in 2009, a June 2010 draft regulation, a formally proposed draft regulation in Sept 2010, then followed by a November 2010 revised draft proposal.  The revised draft proposal was subsequently withdrawn by the Schwarzenegger Administration in late December 2011 following harsh criticism from both environment and business groups. 

 

Delayed in 2011 due to the changing Administrations (Schwarzenegger to Brown) and new appointees to head Cal/EPA and DTSC, work on the regulations was interrupted.  On October 31st, Debbie Raphael, the new Director of DTSC announced the issuance of the informal draft Safer Consumer Products (SCP) Regulations.  While initially met with some favor, the fundamental differences between business and environmental interest remain largely unaddressed.
