DTSC Releases SCP AA Guide

A key component of the Safer Consumer Product Program and associated regulation is the Alternatives Analysis (AA), which entails a robust review of the chemical of concern(s) compared against any potential alternatives for a host of potential life cycle impacts. In order to help facilitate the conducting of such AAs, the Department of Toxics Substances Control (DTSC) has prepared and finalized its first iteration of its Alternatives Analysis (AA) Guide. The Guide is intended to be an evergreen document that will evolve as DTSC’s and stakeholders’ thinking, processes and science evolve.
