The Children’s Safe Product Act(CSPA) of the state of Washington consists of two parts. The first part limits the amount of lead, cadmium and phthalates allowed in children’s products sold in Washington after July 1, 2009 and the second part requires the Department of Ecology to work with Department of Health to develop a list of chemicals that manufacturers must report.
Under CSPA, the Department of Ecology adopted a final rule for manufacturers to report if their products included any of the chemicals of concern. The first cycle for reporting is set to end on August 31st, 2012. During this cycle, only companies “whose annual aggregate gross sales, both within and outside of Washington, are more than one billion dollars, based on the manufacturer's most recent tax year filing are required to report, ” according to an email from the state. The first reporting cycle also only calls for manufacturers of children’s products intended to be put into a child’s mouth, applied to the child’s body, or any “mouthable children’s product” intended for children three years old or younger.
