Cardno ChemRisk Announces a New Service to Address California Safer Consumer Products Regulation

Cardno ChemRisk LLC, a global risk assessment company, will now be providing services focused on helping companies proactively respond to the recently passed California Safer Consumer Products (SCP) regulation which went into effect October 1. On September 26, 2013, the state’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) published a list of about 230 candidate chemicals culled from a list of 1,200 and by next spring, will announce a list of five product-chemical combinations called “priority products.” Key support services that Cardno provides include: product chemistry reviews, prioritization of chemicals vulnerable to the regulatory or supply chain deselection, risk reviews of priority chemicals, comprehensive alternatives analyses, and strategic assistance in evaluating alternatives. According to Tony Kingsbury, vice president of sustainability, companies should address the situation before they start getting notification letters. Julie Panko, Principal Health Scientist at Cardno, believes that by being proactive, companies can achieve four objectives: 1) compliance with the California SCP regulation, 2) minimal if any interruption in product sales, 3) the opportunity to advance product sustainability with responsible product development and 4) a plan to proactively identify and address future chemistry challenges.

To help companies get started, Cardno has created a unique California Safer Consumer Products Support webpage that includes details about the law, important dates, FAQs and more.
