SIN in California legislation

The SIN List is used as a reference in the development of a new California chemicals regulation. DTSC, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, takes notice of the SIN List in its Draft Straw Proposal Outline of “Safer Alternatives for Consumer Products” Rule.
