CPSC Proposes Expanded Phthalates Ban for Children's Products
The CHAP also recommended an interim ban on diisooctyl phthalate (DIOP) until sufficient data on the potential risks was available, but the CPSC did not include that in its proposed rule.
Other phthalates and alternatives were found to be not harmful, not requiring action at this time or not having enough research available on them at this time. The CHAP suggested continued risk management for many of the elements studied, especially those found in food and other products.
Submit comments for this proposed rule, CPSC-2014-0033, by March 16 via www.regulations.gov or Office of the Secretary, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Room 820, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814.
