CalSAFER draft guide on alternatives analysis

California’s State Safer Consumer Products Information Management System (CalSAFER) has published for consultation (closed 20th January 2017) a “Draft Alternatives Analysis Guide” which aims to help organisations identify alternative approaches to fulfil the State’s regulatory safety requirements for consumer products.

Pinfa has submitted comments underlining that fire safety is an important product performance criteria in certain products, concerning not only flammability but also smoke emission and toxicity. Pinfa also comments that the current wording of the document suggests, wrongly, that all flame retardants are “hazardous”, and specifies a number of PIN FRs which are not classified “hazardous” under GHS.
