We are working toward Safer California households, workplaces and products

What is the Initial Priority Product List?

The initial Priority Products list is the first set of product-chemical combinations DTSC has proposed for regulation under the Safer Consumer Products (SCP) regulations. Publication of this draft list of products imposes no new regulatory requirements on manufacturers until DTSC finalizes it by adopting regulations. For more information, read DTSC’s Draft Initial Priority Products List.

For the first list of products, only products with Candidate Chemicals listed on both a hazard trait list and an exposure potential list were considered.

The proposed list of three product-chemical combinations was released on March 13, 2014. The initial list requirements are described fully in section 69503.6 of the SCP regulations.
