Phthalates Action Plan

The Washington State Departments of Ecology and Health are preparing a Draft Phthalates Action Plan (AP) to identify the potential health and environmental effects of phthalate chemicals and recommend strategies to reduce or eliminate those impacts in Washington. We will use this website to share documents and project details with stakeholders.

Scoping the Action Plan with our advisory committee

Ecology and Health are working with an advisory committee, including representatives from industry, tribal nations, local governments, environmental groups, and academia, to develop the Phthalates Action Plan. Scroll down for a list of advisory committee members.

The first step is a scoping effort that creates an outline of the full plan. To do this, we met with the committee in February and March 2022 to discuss specific portions of the plan and give our team an opportunity to learn from committee members’ expertise. We’re now collecting and considering all the input we received during these meetings and using it to develop a draft scope for the action plan.

More information about each scoping meeting is below. Contact our Action Plan team if you have questions or concerns.

We want to hear from you!

We would like your feedback as we determine what recommendations are needed to reduce the use, release, and exposure to phthalates in Washington. You are welcome to complete our online comment form if you'd like to share written feedback about the Phthalates Action Plan. You can also review the input we received during the action plan process.

Our Phthalates Action Plan team will consider your input as we scope the action plan, as we identify appropriate recommendations, and throughout the process of writing the plan.
