How is a Regulatory Response Selected?

The SCP framework emphasizes hazard reduction more than risk management. DTSC will give preference to a Regulatory Response that ensures the reduction or avoidance of impacts rather than simply controlling an exposure or a release of a chemical of concern. Public health and environmental protection and cost to responsible entities or government will also be considered.

Read the Regulations

The Safer Consumer Product regulations provide details regarding Regulatory Response. See Division 4.5, Title 22, Chapter 55, Article 6. Regulatory Responses.
