On July 27, 2012, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) issued the latest draft of its proposed Safer Consumer Products Regulations. The regulations set forth the DTSC’s plan for finding safe substitutes for hazardous chemicals found in consumer products. Stakeholders now have 45 days to comment on the proposed regulations.

The Safer Consumer Products Regulations are the first step in the implementation of the initiative.
