The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has adopted changes to the regulation for the Safer Chemicals in Children’s Products law, which requires companies to report when products for children 12 years old and younger contain chemicals that have been identified as priority chemicals. This regulation had to be amended because of changes to the law enacted by the legislature. The new regulation includes changes to the criteria for designating chemicals of high concern. Only chemicals of high concern can become priority chemicals. Definitions for contaminant and de minimis level were also added to the regulation. This amended regulation became effective on July 21, 2012.
