Chemicals in Children's Products

There are many chemicals in our environment. Some of them are in products we all use — including children’s products. Children can be more susceptible to some chemicals.

  • Some chemicals can interfere with a child's growth and development.

  • Children's bodies are small so they can take in more chemicals in proportion to their body weight than adults.

  • Children can come in contact with more chemicals through how they interact with their environment (for example, hand-to-mouth behavior).

Vermont prioritizes protecting public health and the environment. Beginning January 1, 2017, manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children, must report information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

Our online reporting system is temporarily unavailable. Due to the development of a new multi-state reporting system, we are postponing the July 31st, 2024 reporting deadline. Reports for products sold between February 2, 2024 and July 31, 2024 are due by January 31, 2025. Join our mailing list for updates on the reporting system, or come back to this page for status updates.

Reporting documents

  • Brand Name Product Model Template – .xlsx format or .xls format. Please do not change the words in rows 1 and 2 of the template. Editing rows 1 and 2 will cause your file to be rejected. Copy and paste your data into rows 3 and below.
  • Trade Secret Reporting Form – must be sent to the Health Department via email at the time that the disclosure is submitted. If it is not received within 24 hours of the disclosure, the request will not be accepted.
  • Practical Quantitation Limit (PQL) Document identifies the PQLs that Vermont has set for each of the chemicals, and identifies accredited laboratories that can test for the chemicals. PQL is the lowest amount of a chemical that can be measured in a product with confidence.
  • Notice of Removal of a Chemical Form – use this form to notify the Health Department that a chemical has been removed from the product or that the product is no longer for sale. Upon receipt of the form, the Health Department will remove the reported information from the website.
  • Notice of Exemption Form – Vermont law exempts manufacturers from reporting to the Health Department under certain circumstances pursuant to the Chemicals of High Concern in Children’s Products Rule (see the form for more information). If you meet these circumstances, please complete the form and email it to

How to search for a product that was reported

Manufacturers of children's products submit chemical disclosure reports to the Health Department. The reports apply to children's products that are offered for sale in Vermont. Read the glossary of terms used

The brand name and product model data reported to us by manufacturers are available in the five downloadable Excel files below. You can search the data within the file by manufacturer, brand name or product model. The data are sorted alphabetically by manufacturer. 

Brand names are listed only when they were provided to us from the manufacturer. Product models may be words or numbers. The numbers are typically the Universal Product Code (UPC) for the product. Since some of the brand name and product model information is incomplete or not descriptive enough to identify the product, the data will be updated with additional information provided by manufacturers. These files will be updated periodically.

You can choose to download all the files and browse the data, or you can search by manufacturer or brand in the table below. Some products are reported with a product description instead of a brand. These descriptions are not searchable in the table but are searchable in the data files.

Once you open the Excel file, follow these steps to complete your search:

  1. Make sure your macro settings are enabled in Excel to conduct the search. If a pop-up notification comes up, accept it to enable macros.
  2. Select the radio button to choose to search by manufacturer, brand name or product model. 
  3. Enter the search term into the yellow search box, click on the orange cell below, then click the “search” button.

Additional information from manufacturers

The function set includes this information from manufacturers: chemical name, function, component, concentration and brick (the Global Product Classification product description).

PLEASE NOTE: The reports on this website are based on data provided to the Health Department. The presence of a chemical in a children’s product does not necessarily mean that the product is harmful to human health or that there is any violation of existing safety standards or laws. The reporting triggers are not health-based values.

Learn more about Vermont's law and regulations

Act 188 (2014)

There are currently 89 chemicals on the State’s list of Chemicals of High Concern to Children. Act 188 (Vermont Statute Title 18, Chapter 38A) relating to the regulation of toxic substances (2014) creates a requirement that manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children must disclose information about these chemicals to the Health Department.

A "chemical of high concern to children" means a chemical listed under Act 188, or a chemical designated by the Health Department as a chemical of high concern by rule under §1776.

Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule

The Chemical of High Concern in Children's Products Rule provides the information required from the manufacturer about chemicals of high concern that are in a children’s product made by the manufacturer. If the chemical is intentionally added to a children’s product, manufacturers are required to report to the State if the chemical is in the product at a level above the Practical Quantitation Limit (PQL) — the lowest amount of a chemical that can be measured in a product with confidence. If a chemical is not intentionally added to a children’s product, the manufacturer is required to report to the State when it is at concentrations of 100 parts per million or greater.
