Please see the response (below) from Kara Steward of the Department of Ecology regarding the the Task Force request to consider PCBs in the CSPA reporting ruling.
Happy holidays to everyone.
Please extend my thanks to the members of SRRTTF for the request for consideration of PCBs as an addition to the Chemicals of High Concern to Children during the Children’s Safe Products Act rulemaking update. Ecology reviewed the information submitted. At this time, PCBs are not being considered as an addition to the CHCC list. The scope of the current rulemaking is too narrow to accommodate a rulemaking change to lower the 100 part per million reporting limit for chemicals present as contaminants.
The updated CSPA documents are on this webpage:
