The Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) announced updates on the Safer Products for Washington initiative, covering two major cycles. Legislative reports and supporting documents for cycles 1.5 and 2 were published on May 30, accompanied by public comment summaries.

Cycle 1.5, now in its third phase, focuses on regulatory determinations, with comprehensive legislative and technical reports available. Cycle 2, currently in its first phase, prioritizes identifying harmful chemicals, supported by detailed documentation.

This summer, DOE will host webinars to discuss these reports and ongoing efforts. Key dates include:

July 11, 2024: Two sessions (9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. PDT) on Cycle 2, covering priority chemicals and initial priority product research.

July 30, 2024, 9:30 a.m. PDT: A session on Cycle 1.5’s regulatory determinations and upcoming rulemaking.

August 14, 2024, 9:30 a.m. PDT: An update on rule development for Cycle 1.5, inviting public feedback.

These webinars are opportunities for stakeholders to engage with the DOE’s work on safer products and provide input. For more information or to share feedback, contact [email protected]. Join DOE this summer to contribute to a safer, more sustainable Washington.
