DTSC hosts workshops when the Safer Consumer Products program announces a new plan, products list, regulation or other significant step. They provide the public an opportunity to discuss the scope and content of such issues.
Help DTSC Research Potential Priority Products
This webinar will provide an overview of DTSC’s progress towards Priority Product selection and outline opportunities for your input on three topics:
- Potential Aquatic Impacts and Continued Uses of Nonylphenol Ethoxylates and Triclosan;
- Nail Salon Products and Chemicals; and
- Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) in Carpets, Rugs, Upholstered Furniture, and their Care and Treatment Products.
This webinar is the beginning of an engagement process allowing stakeholders the opportunity to provide information on these areas of interest. This information will help inform DTSC decisions regarding the next round of Priority Products. After the webinar, we will post background documents on each topic and solicit further information via our CalSAFER system.
