Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says US CPSC is meeting again on phthalates in childrens’ toys in July 2010.

Section 108 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) requires the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to convene a Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel (CHAP) to study the effects on children’s health of all phthalates and phthalate alternatives as used in children’s toys and child care articles. The CHAP shall make recommendations to the Commission regarding any phthalates (or combinations of phthalates) in addition to those identified in section 108 of the CPSIA or phthalate alternatives that the panel determines should be declared banned hazardous substances. The second meeting of the CHAP on Phthalates will be held July 26, 27, and 28, 2010 at CPSC headquarters.
