In June 2014, the State of Vermont in the United States signed Act S.238 into law (Act 188, numbered VSA 18: Chapter 38A \"Children are highly concerned about chemicals\"), requiring children’s product manufacturers or industry The Ministry of Health (DOH) reports on Children's High Concern Chemicals (CHCC). The bill also instructs the Ministry of Health to publish \"rules\" that implement the bill.
According to the Act, if CHCC exists in accessible parts of children's products, and one of the following conditions is met, a report is required:
-Intentionally added and greater than the actual quantization limit (PQL), or
—— Pollutants equal to or greater than 100ppm.
On June 19, 2019, Vermont signed the CH.55 Act on \"Reduction and Reporting of Toxic Substances\" and \"Children's Highly Concerned Chemicals\", amending the CHCC reporting rules; the latest revisions include:
——Modify the standard for adding chemicals to the CHCC list;
——The required report includes the brand name, product model and universal product code (UPC code, if any);
——The next report date is August 31, 2020, and then once a year;
——Instruct the health commissioner to adopt procedures to report children's products produced within the specified date. The rule must be passed before January 1, 2020.
The above requirements took effect on July 1, 2019.
