Policy Priorities

DTSC felt it important to identify policy priorities that would guide our selection of product categories for the Work Plan. These priorities will also inform our selection of specific product-chemical combinations during the current three-year Work Plan cycle.

Our policy objectives and priorities played an important role in guiding our selection of product categories. The categories include products that:

  • Provide clear pathways for exposure to one or more Candidate Chemicals
  • Contain chemicals that have been detected in biomonitoring studies
  • Contain chemicals that have been observed in indoor air and dust studies
  • May impact children or workers
  • Contain chemicals that may adversely impact aquatic resource or that have been observed through water quality monitoring
