Chemical Disclosure Program for Children's Products

There are many chemicals in our environment. Some of them are used in products we all use, including children’s products. Vermont prioritizes protecting public health and the environment. Consumers are encouraged to learn more about the chemicals that are in children’s products.

Beginning January 1, 2017, manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children, must disclose information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

Vermont Law and Regulations

Act 188 , relating to the regulation of toxic substances (2014) creates a requirement that manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children must report information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

"Chemical of High Concern to Children" means a chemical listed under Act 188, or designated by the Health Department as a chemical of high concern by rule under §1776 of this title.

Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule
The Chemicals of High Concern in Children’s Products Rule provides the information required from the manufacturer about chemicals of high concern that are intentionally added to a children’s product or are in a children’s product made by the manufacturer. If the chemical is intentionally added to a children’s product, manufacturers are required to report to the State if the chemical is in the product at a level above the Practical Quantitation Limit (PQL)—the lowest amount of a chemical that can be measured in a product with confidence. If a chemical is in a children’s product made by the manufacturer, the manufacturer is required to report to the State when it is at concentrations of 100 parts per million or greater.

Please do not change the words in rows 1 and 2 of the template. Editing rows 1 and 2 will cause your file to be rejected. Copy and paste your data into rows 3 and below.

The Trade Secret Reporting Form must be sent to the Program via email at the time that the disclosure is submitted. If the form is not received within 24 hours of the disclosure, the request will not be accepted.

The Practical Quantitation Limit (PQL) Document identifies the PQLs that Vermont has set for each of the 66 chemicals, and identifies accredited laboratories that can test for the chemicals. PQL is the lowest amount of a chemical that can be measured in a product with confidence.

Data and Resources

List of Chemicals of High Concern to Children PDF Excel
Each of the chemicals on this list is included in accordance with the standards set forth in Act 188 (2014). The list is organized by chemical name and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number.

Chemical Disclosure Datasets
The chemical disclosures have been submitted to the Health Department by manufacturers of children's products. The disclosures apply to children's products that are offered for sale in Vermont. These files will be updated every other week. For help interpreting the data, please see the Public Data Dictionary .

Brand Name and Product Model (BNPM) includes brand name and product model data for each chemical report. Product models may be words or numbers. The numbers are typically the Universal Product Code (UPC) for the product. As some brand name and product model information is insufficient to identify the product, the data will be updated with additional information provided by manufacturers. Please note that the data set is very large, and is split into multiple files below to be downloaded.
