(Seattle, WA) Washington state officials want manufacturers of children’s products to report when they use certain toxic chemicals.

They have come up with a list of 59 chemicals that would trigger reporting to the state. The list includes cadmium, formaldehyde, benzene and bisphenol A.

The new rules proposed Monday by the Department of Ecology would apply to manufacturers of toys, car seats, cosmetics, jewelry and other children’s products. Under those rules, the makers must report how much of those chemicals are in their products and how they’re being used.

Some industry officials say children’s products are already heavily regulated.
