The proposed regulations would apply to manufacturers, marketers, importers and retailers, and would include evaluating and prioritizing a list of product and COC combinations so that a list of “Priority Products” can be created. If a product is deemed a “Priority Product,” the manufacturer will be required to perform analyses on the product so the effect of COCs in the product can be limited.
