Description The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) first proposed the new rule chapter called the Children’s Safe Products – Reporting Rule (Chapter 173-334 WAC) in October 2010. Ecology revised the October 2010 version of the proposed rule based on comments from businesses and the public, and is filing a supplemental proposal to allow another opportunity for public comment on the revised proposed rule.

The Administrative Procedures Act (APA; RCW 34.05.328(d)(e)) requires two types of analyses before adopting a significant legislative rule – a cost-benefit analysis and a least burdensome alternative analysis. This report provides the results of these analyses and shows the potential impacts associated with the proposed rule.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
