Safer Consumer Products Regulations: How They Will Affect You | Maureen Gorsen, Alston & Bird

On September 26, California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) published a list of chemicals to be considered for regulation under the Safer Consumer Products initiative. This program, which went into effect October 1, will eventually require manufacturers to evaluate the feasibility of removing certain chemicals from particular products. The regulations’ effects will reach far beyond California’s borders, to companies in other states and even other countries.
