October 17, 2017 | Toy professionals can learn all about Oregon’s Toxic-Free Kids Act in an upcoming webinar hosted by The Toy Association. The one-hour webinar – “Understanding Oregon’s Chemical Reporting Law & Compliance,” will take place November 2 at 2 p.m. (Eastern). Registration is now open.
Oregon's Toxic-Free Kids Act requires all children’s product manufacturers that sell products within the state to submit reports to the Oregon Health Authority by January 1, 2018 if their products contain any of the High Priority Chemicals for Children’s Products (HPCCCH) at or above de minimis levels.
To help toy companies navigate the state’s new chemical reporting law, Jennifer Gibbons, The Toy Association’s vice president of state government affairs, will provide an overview of the law, including its reporting rules, guidance, and online notification system, and information on the law’s next phase of implementation. The webinar is specifically recommended for quality control professionals, compliance officers, and chemical program managers.
Toy Association webinars are free for members; $49 for non-members. As always, a recording of the session will be made available for members who register but are unable to participate live.
For more information, contact Anne McConnell, The Toy Association’s senior director of market research & data strategy.
The Toy Association also wants to remind toy professionals that registration is still open for the webinar, “Analyzing the New Frontier Markets for Toys and Games,” on Thursday, October 19 at 2 p.m. (Eastern). During the one-hour presentation, Matthew Hudak, Euromonitor International’s senior toys and games industry analyst, will share insight into the changing demographic and geographic trends in the BRICS markets (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and Sub-Saharan Africa) and how that will affect the toy industry over the next decade.
