Draft Alternatives Assessment Guide Available for Comment

The Safer Consumer Products program (SCP) is pleased to release the Draft Stage 1 Alternatives Analysis Guide (AA Guide), now available for comments and questions. The AA Guide provides useful approaches, methods, resources, tools and examples of how to fulfill SCP’s regulatory requirements. This Draft of the AA Guide only covers the first stage AA required by the SCP regulations. A draft including the second stage AA is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2016. The two stages of the AA process are:

  • First Stage AA: The first stage involves an initial screening of alternatives with a preliminary analysis to identify the legal, functional, and performance requirements of the Priority Product and Chemical of Concern. See table on page 16 of the AA Guide for more details.
  • Second Stage AA: The second stage is an in-depth analysis of the relevant factors, life cycle, and economic impacts. See table on page 17 of the AA Guide for more details.
