Alternatives to Certain Phthalates Partnership - Milestones

Partnership Homepage | About This Project | Milestones | Participants

There are a number of efforts now ongoing to understand toxicity and related issues for phthalates, including the Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel (CHAP) on Phthalates, convened by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (see: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Regulations-Laws--Standards/CPSIA/Phthalates/Chronic-Hazard-Advisory-Panel-CHAP-on-Phthalates/). The DfE partnership on Alternatives to Certain Phthalates, which includes over 300 stakeholders, representing industry, manufacturing, environmental and public health advocates, other government agencies and academic researchers, recognized that expert panel determinations, such as the CHAP report, will help inform our work on the alternatives assessment. Once this work has been completed, we will revisit the schedule for conducting the alternatives assessment.
