The newly released Oct. 31 draft of California’s Green Chemistry regulation makes substantial changes to earlier draft regulations by the state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control that had come under intense criticism, say attorneys Peter Hsiao, Michael Steel, and William Tarantino, and environmental analyst Meredith Klein in this BNA Insight.

The authors offer a detailed analysis of the draft regulation, which if adopted will impose ‘‘broad compliance obligations’’ on manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, including limitations on the use of certain chemicals, reformulation requirements to eliminate targeted chemicals, and an outright ban on sales of certain products in California. The informal public comment period closes Dec. 30.
