What is the Priority Product Work Plan?
DTSC’s final 2015-17 Work Plan describes product categories from which the Department will select Priority Products over the next three years. The Work Plan does not specifically identify Priority Products or Chemicals of Concern and does not impose any regulatory requirements.
Seven product categories were chosen using a variety of screening approaches discussed by DTSC’s Green Ribbon Science Panel at their June 25, 2014, meeting.
DTSC will use the screening approaches and prioritization criteria to identify specific products within these categories that will be investigated as potential Priority Products. We also will solicit stakeholder input to help clarify various factors that lead to selection of potential Priority Products. The Work Plan is intended to provide a higher level of predictability regarding potential products DTSC may choose to investigate.
An update to the Work Plan will be issued one year before its expiration date to indicate the focus of the next three-year cycle.
