Safer Consumer Products
SAFER CONSUMER PRODUCTS REGULATIONS
The Safer Consumer Products (SCP) regulations seek to reduce toxic chemicals in consumer products, create new business opportunities in the emerging safer consumer products economy, and make it easier for consumers and businesses to identify what chemicals are present in the products they buy. Instead of banning the use of a chemical without knowing the availability or safety of alternatives, the regulations provide a process for manufacturers to answer two questions: 1) Is this chemical necessary? 2) Is there a safer alternative?
