Chemical Use Disclosure
February 25, 2013
For a number of years, companies, and advocates have been calling for greater transparency in the information available on the use of chemicals in products. In response, some state environmental agencies have begun to require reporting on chemical use in certain products and to publish the available data. The Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2) held a “Chemical Use Disclosure” webinar to kick-off a series of discussions designed to help shape the future of these information resources. It featured presentations on:
- The newly released Washington Department of Ecology online system for searching for information collected from manufacturers on the use of about 60 chemicals of high concern in children’s products; and
- The Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC) online database covering the intentional use of mercury in products.
