The Vermont Department of Health (VDH) is proposing to amend the Chemicals of High Concern in Children’s Products Rule under the state’s Chemical Disclosure Program.

The proposal establishes the first two-year retrospective reports, would be due August 31, 2018, for products sold from January 1, 2017, to the reporting date; and then on August 31, 2020, for products sold from September 1, 2018, to the reporting date.

Additionally, the proposal adds twenty chemicals to the State’s list, including certain flame retardants, phthalates, and bisphenols.

VDH held a public workshop on January 22, 2018 to discuss these proposed amendments.
