Title: EPA’s Safer Chemical Ingredients List
Presenter: Clive Davies, Environmental Protection Agency, Chief, Design for the Environment Branch
The Safer Chemical Ingredients List was created in September 2012 and now contains almost 650 safer chemicals and includes more than 150 fragrance chemicals. The Safer Chemical Ingredients List serves as a resource for manufacturers interested in making safer products, health and environmental advocates seeking to encourage the use of safer chemicals, and consumers seeking information on the ingredients in safer chemical products. It serves as a guide for manufacturers of Design for the Environment (DfE) labeled products, which must meet EPA’s rigorous, scientific standards for protecting human health and the environment. For additional information, please visit www.epa.gov/dfe/saferingredients.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
