Vermont Regulations on Children's Products

Vermont’s Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules voted to approve the Department of Health’s proposed rule, Chemicals of High Concern in Children’s products, without further recommendations for change.  Vermont defines "Children's product" to mean any consumer product, marketed for use by, marketed to, sold, offered for sale, or distributed to children in the State of Vermont, including, but not limited to “a product designed or intended by the manufacturer to help a child with sucking or teething, to facilitate sleep, relaxation, or the feeding of a child, or to be worn as clothing by children...”  The rule, which requires reporting by manufacturers beginning July 1, 2016, contains a list of 66 chemicals that, if contained in the product, must be reported to the state. The state’s Department of Health, the agency responsible for overseeing this rule’s implementation, indicated that guidance materials will be developed and made available.  For more information or a copy of the rule’s language, please contact Marci Kinter at
