Update Issue


The Department of Environmental Protection proposed to amend 06-096 Code Me. Regs. Ch. 882, Designation of Bisphenol A as a Priority Chemical and Regulation of Bisphenol A in Children’s Products. The proposal is in response to a citizen petition, and the rulemaking would add a definition of "toddler food" and extend the existing prohibition on the sale of children's products containing bisphenol A. There will be a public hearing September 6, 2012, and the deadline for comment is September 28. See http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules/notices/2012/081512.html.
