Washington State's Guidance Targets Chemical Content Reporting

The Washington State Department of Ecology gave tips on 11 aspects of its Children's Safe Products Reporting Rule. Made available March 2, the new guidance is 44 pages, and about a quarter of that is step-by-step screenshots with explanations for using various aspects of the state's online reporting system. Elsewhere, some of the advice involves brief and basic overviews.

 

For example, the first question covered the question "Do I need to report?" The answer is just a half page and explains the triggers: sales in the state, products defined as children's, use of a chemical of high concern, and being a person of entity with reporting responsibility. However, in the online version of the guidance (bit.ly/2Fi8QCC), the last three have links elsewhere for additional, detailed information.

 

Other topics involved reporting responsibility; information that must be reported; covered product categories; by-component reporting; by-concentration-range reporting; practical quantitation limits with recommended testing; contaminants and due diligence; a chemicals function list.; using the online reporting database; creating reports online; and managing reports online.
