The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) released its much anticipated draft Initial Priority Product Work Plan under the Safer Consumer Products Regulations on Friday, September 12, 2014. Seven Priority Products Categories have been identified: Beauty, Personal Care, and Hygiene, Building Products, Cleaning Products, Clothing, Household/Office Furniture/Furnishings, Office Machinery (Consumable Products) and Fishing and Angling Equipment.
