WAC 173-334-080

What must the manufacturer include in its report to the department?

(1) The report required by RCW 70.240.040 must be filed annually with the department in accordance with the following:
(a) Each chemical on the CHCC list that is an intentionally added chemical present in a product component must be reported at any concentration above the PQL.
(b) Each chemical on the CHCC list that is a contaminant present in a product component must be reported at any concentration above 100 ppm. A manufacturer need not file a report with respect to any CHCC that occurs in a product component only as a contaminant if the manufacturer had in place a manufacturing control program and exercised due diligence to minimize the presence of the contaminant in the component.
(2) The report must include all of the following information:
(a) The name of the CHCC and its Chemical Abstracts Service registry number.
(b) The product category or categories in which it occurs.
(c) The product component or components within each product category in which it occurs.
(d) A brief description of the function, if any, of the CHCC in each product component within each product category.
(e) The total concentration of the CHCC contained in each product component within each product category. The total concentration may be reported in ranges, rather than the exact concentration. If there are multiple CHCC concentrations for a given component in a particular product category, the manufacturer must use the highest concentration for reporting.
For the purpose of this rule, the reporting ranges are as follows:
(i) Equal to or more than the PQL but less than 100 ppm (0.01%);
(ii) Equal to or more than 100 ppm (0.01%) but less than 500 ppm (0.05%);
(iii) Equal to or more than 500 ppm (0.05%) but less than 1,000 ppm (0.10%);
(iv) Equal to or more than 1,000 ppm (0.10%) but less than 5,000 ppm (0.5%); or
(v) Equal to or more than 5,000 ppm (0.5%) but less than 10,000 ppm (1.0%); or
(vi) Equal to or more than 10,000 ppm (1.0%).
(f) The name and address of the reporting manufacturer or trade organization and the name, address and phone number of the contact person for the reporting manufacturer or trade organization. When a trade organization is the reporting party, the report must include a list of the manufacturers on whose behalf the trade organization is reporting, and all of the information that would otherwise be required of the individual manufacturers.
(g) Any other information the manufacturer deems relevant to the appropriate use of the product.
(3) Reporting parties are not required to include either:
(a) Any specific formula information; or
(b) The specific name and address of the facility which is responsible for the introduction of a CHCC into a children's product or product component.
(4) If a reporting party believes the information being provided is confidential business information (CBI), in whole or in part, it may request that the department treat the information as confidential business information as provided in RCW 43.21A.160. The department will use its established procedures to determine how it will handle the information.
(5) The department will maintain an online reporting database to be used for reporting on CHCCs. This same database may be used by the reporting party to flag the submitted information it thinks should be treated as CBI.
(6) Any information that is not determined to be confidential business information will be available to the public. As resources allow, the department will post this information on the department's web site.
