Effective July 1, 2017: Children's Foam-Padded Sleeping Products with TDCPP or TCEP as a Priority Product

The regulation for Children's Foam-Padded Sleeping Products containing TDCPP or TCEP as a Priority Product went into effect on July 1, 2017: Manufacturer's of this product (see final regulations text for full description of the Priority Product) must notify the Department by September 1, 2017. To submit a Priority Product Notification, register on the Safer Consumer Products Information Management System, CalSAFER, and submit a notification. If you are a manufacturer of foam-padded sleeping products not subject to the regulations (your products do not contain the Chemicals of Concern), or have a role in bringing these products to the market in California (importer, retailer etc.), please take a few moments to complete the survey below. The information you provide will help us ensure that all regulated entities are in compliance with the regulations.

A primary goal of DTSC’s Safer Consumer Products program is to reduce people’s exposure to toxic chemicals in consumer products. When we look at different products available in the marketplace, we think about how and where people are exposed to the chemicals in those products. We pay particular attention to chemicals that might harm infants and children. If research studies show that particular chemicals in a product could cause health problems, we can list that product as a Priority Product. Companies that make and sell the product will have to try to make the product safer for consumers.

After a thorough review of the research, DTSC determined that children may be at risk for adverse health effects if they use or are near children’s foam-padded sleeping products that contain the chemical flame retardants TDCPP or TCEP. We chose this Priority Product with the goal of reducing children’s exposure to these particular toxic chemicals.
