2015-2017 Priority Product Work Plan Workshops

DTSC's 2015-2017 Priority Products Work Plan identifies product categories from which Priority Products will be selected over the coming three years. A draft of the work plan will be available for comment shortly in advance of the workshop. During this workshop DTSC staff will present an overview of the work plan and will explain the process by which future Priority Products will be listed. The public will be invited to comment. It is important to note that the Work Plan imposes no requirements on responsible entities, it is only intended to provide signals to the marketplace regarding the scope of product categories that will be under evaluation. 

Workshops for the 2015-2017 Priority Product Work Plan are scheduled for:

  • August 19, 2014, at DTSC's Cypress office, from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
  • August 25, 2014, in the Byron Sher auditorium, Sacramento, from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
