Vermont Law and Regulations

Act 188 relating to the regulation of toxic substances (2014) creates a requirement that manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children must disclose information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

"Chemical of High Concern to Children" means a chemical listed under Act 188, or designated by the Health Department as a chemical of high concern by rule under §1776 of this title.

Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule
The Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule provides the information required from the manufacturer about chemicals of high concern that are in a children’s product made by the manufacturer. If the chemical is intentionally added to a children’s product, manufacturers are required to report to the State if the chemical is in the product at a level above the Practical Quantitation Limit (PQL)—the lowest amount of a chemical that can be measured in a product with confidence. If a chemical is not intentionally added to a children’s product, the manufacturer is required to report to the State when it is at concentrations of 100 parts per million or greater.
