GRSP's Future Discussion Topics

As the Safer Consumer Product program moves forward and matures, the GRSP will provide advice and input on a wide range of discussion topics, such as:

  • The Department's Alternative Analysis Guide.  The Guide provides information and resources for the Alternatives Analysis process established in the Safer Consumer Products regulations.  It also relates established alternatives analysis tools and practices to the California requirements.

  • The implementation of the 2015-2017 Priority Products Work Plan.  Over the next two years, the Department will select Priority Products from the product categories described in the Work Plan.  DTSC will use policy priorities along with science-based screening approaches and prioritization criteria to identify potential future Priority Products.

The Department will seek the Panel's review on these approaches and criteria to ensure a robust scientific foundation for its decision making process.  Refer to the Past Meetings section on the GRSP Meetings web page, and the Subcommittees page to see topics discussed at past meetings.  View the current members of the Green Ribbon Science Panel.
