So far in 2014, 30 states have considered chemical safety legislation due to increasing concerns about the safety of chemicals in consumer products and the absence of TSCA reform. California, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, Vermont and Washington were among the states that passed chemical safety legislation in 2013 but no state has been as aggressive or ambitious as California, whose Safer Consumer Products Regulations went into effect on October 1, 2013. In March, California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) announced three proposed initial priority product and candidate chemical combinations:

  • Paint & Varnish Strippers containing Methylene Chloride
  • Spray Polyurethane Foam Systems with Unreacted Diisocyanates
  • Children’s Foam-Padded Sleeping Products containing TDCPP

By October 1, 2014 the DTSC must issue a three-year working plan and potentially new priority product categories to be scrutinized.

Infocast has organized the 5th Safer Consumer Products Summit, the only meeting of its kind, to coincide with the next phases of the California SCP Regulations. The summit will bring representatives from the DTSC and other governmental decision makers together with nationally recognized consumer brands, manufacturers, OEMs, retailers and green chemistry experts to provide the timeliest information on California’s regulations and the rapidly evolving state, federal & international chemicals legislation landscape. The event will also provide the networking necessary to thrive in this new era of consumer goods. In the absence of TSCA reform, California’s Safer Consumer Products Regulations are the law of the land for companies who conduct consumer products business in the world’s eighth largest economy.

In addition to our market-leading summit, the Innovating for Safer Consumer Products Pre-Summit Forum will examine green chemistry, innovation and sustainability initiatives among academia, brand owners, chemical majors, OEMs and retailers, and will provide lessons learned from market pioneers on getting ahead of the regulatory curve via product and brand innovation.
