Priority Product Work Plan Workshops

DTSC's Priority Products Work Plan identifies product categories from which Priority Products will be selected over the coming three years. A draft of the work plan will be available for comment shortly in advance of the workshop. During this workshop DTSC staff will present an overview of the work plan and will explain the process by which future Priority Products will be listed. The public will be invited to comment. It is important to note that the Work Plan imposes no requirements on responsible entities, it is only intended to provide signals to the marketplace regarding the scope of product categories that will be under evaluation. 

Important Update:

DTSC is postponing the workshops to discuss the draft Priority Products Work Plan. The workshops, originally scheduled for August 19th and 25th, 2014, will be rescheduled for times in September. DTSC values stakeholder input and wants to provide ample time for both review of the draft Work Plan in advance of the workshops, and stakeholder input during and after the workshops via written comments. During the workshops DTSC staff will present an overview of the Work Plan and will explain the process by which future Priority Products will be chosen from the product categories outlined in the work plan. The public will be invited to comment at the workshop. DTSC will also accept and consider written comments on the draft.

It is important to note that the Work Plan imposes no requirements on responsible entities, it is only intended to provide signals to the marketplace regarding the scope of product categories that will be under evaluation over the next three years. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
