There are many chemicals in our environment. Some of them are in products we all use—including children’s products. Consumers are encouraged to learn more about the chemicals that are in children’s products.
Vermont prioritizes protecting public health and the environment. Beginning January 1, 2017, 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.
There are currently 86 chemicals on the State’s list of Chemicals of High Concern to Children (see Vermont Statute Title 18, Chapter 38A for more information on Vermont’s law). 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 disclose 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 Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule provides the information required from the manufacturer about chemicals of high concern that 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 not intentionally added to a children’s product, the manufacturer is required to report to the State when it is at concentrations of 100 parts per million or greater.

See the Public Data Dictionary to help you understand the terms used in reporting.
The brand name and product model data reported to us by manufacturers are available in the five downloadable Excel files below. You can search the data within the file by manufacturer, brand name or product model. The data are sorted alphabetically by manufacturer.
Brand names are listed only when they were provided to us from the manufacturer. Product models may be words or numbers. The numbers are typically the Universal Product Code (UPC) for the product. Since some of the brand name and product model information is incomplete or not descriptive enough to identify the product, the data will be updated with additional information provided by manufacturers. These files will be updated periodically.
You can choose to download all the files and browse the data, or you can search by manufacturer or brand in the table below. Some products are reported with a product description instead of a brand. These descriptions are not searchable in the table but are searchable in the data files. Once you open the Excel file, follow these steps to complete your search:
- Make sure your macro settings are enabled in Excel to conduct the search. If a pop-up notification comes up, accept it to enable macros.
- Select the radio button to choose to search by manufacturer, brand name or product model.
- Enter the search term into the yellow search box, click on the orange cell below, then click the “search” button.
