Nowhere is this more pronounced than in the regulation of children’s product and, more specifically, those regulations implemented at the state-level. The panel will review a broad range of state-level chemical disclosure requirements, state-level efforts toward alignment, industry efforts aimed at satisfying competing requirements and manufacturing control programs employed by individual manufacturers focused on reducing the potential need to report in the first place.
