The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) invites stakeholders to attend a virtual public meeting, via WebEx, on the chemicals under consideration for listing as Chemicals of Concern (COCs) and High Priority Chemicals (HPCs) for the Toxic Chemicals in Children’s Products (TCCP) program. This virtual public meeting will take place on Thursday, February 16, 2023, at 10:00 am, Eastern Standard Time (New York). DEC will present an overview of the enacted TCCP law and discuss the chemicals under consideration for listing as COCs and HPCs that manufacturers will need to report if present in children’s products. Please note that DEC is soliciting feedback on these chemicals under consideration and will post them on our website in advance of the meeting. Additionally, please note that this will be a pre-rulemaking meeting and DEC anticipates releasing a proposed rule with additional public comment opportunities after feedback at this meeting is obtained. 

If interested in attending this virtual public meeting, registration is required. Register via Webex.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
