In 2008, the state of Washington adopted the Children’s Safe Product Act (CSPA). As part of that act, the Washington Department of Ecology (DOE) was tasked with developing draft regulations to implement the act. Under the regulations, 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,” if their product includes a chemical on the state chemical of concern list. The first round of reporting data concluded in August of 2012. The second round of reporting data has now been concluded and it is now available through the Washington DOE site.
We previously issued an advisory on the Children's Safe Product Act.
