ACA Webinar: Safer Products for Washington
Presenter: Craig Manahan, Safer Products Chemist at Washington DOE
This webinar will provide an overview of the Safer Products for Washington program. Chapter 70.365 Revised Code of Washington creates a process for the state Department of Ecology (DOE), in consultation with the state Department of Health, to regulate classes of chemicals in consumer products. The law requires DOE to designate priority chemical classes, identify products that contain these chemicals, determine regulatory actions, and adopt rules to implement regulatory actions.
The webinar will address the Washington identified products, focusing on Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in printing inks and Phenolics in food cans, which DOE is considering for further evaluation and potential regulation.
