HPCCCH Biennial Notice Reporting System

Per ORS 431A.258, manufacturers must provide Biennial Notice to OHA of children's products sold or offered for sale in Oregon that are covered by the Oregon Toxic-Free Kids Act and contain High Priority Chemicals of Concern for Children's Health (HPCCCH) at or above de minimis levels in the final product.

De minimis levels for intentionally-added HPCCCH vary. Those levels are in OAR 333-016-2035 Exhibit A. The de minimis level for HPCCCH found as contaminants is at or above a concentration of 100 parts per million. A fee of US $250.00 per unique HPCCCH in a manufacturer’s biennial notice must be paid as well. The three-step Reporting System and instructions for its use is below.

The first Biennial Notice must be submitted by January 1, 2018.

Who must report

Manufacturers are defined by ORS 431A.253 as "...any person that produces a children’s product or an importer or domestic distributor of a children’s product. For [Reporting purposes], “importer” means the owner of the children’s product."

Companies that physically produce a children's product, distributors bringing it to Oregon (if applicable), and retailers who sell it in the state, should communicate with each other to determine who among them is to provide a Biennial Notice for the product in question and pay the fee.

Per ORS 431A.268 manufacturers of children’s products with annual worldwide gross sales of less than $5 million on their most recent tax returns, are exempt from having to provide Biennial Notices. [Consult a tax professional to determine the specific status of your company.]

What must be reported

A Biennial Notice for a children's product, as defined by ORS 431A.253, must be provided using the three-step process described here by January 1, 2018, if the product is sold or offered for sale in Oregon in 2017.
