Summary: CPSC's annual performance budget request is submitted to Congress as part of the President's budget in February.
Extract: such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, manganese, and mercury; organic compounds, such as ketones, chloroethane; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, and halogenated fire retardants; nylon and polyester fibers; dyes and latex. Many of these substances have been associated with possible acute and chronic health effects, such as sensitization and cancer. The CPSC requests an additional $1.0 million as part of the Healthy Children initiative to conduct a hazard analysis and quantitative risk assessment on crumb rubber to determine whether crumb rubber may be "hazardous," as defined in the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, in support of coordinated action with other Federal agencies, as needed.

Summary: CPSC is issuing a final rule determining that unfinished and untreated trunk wood does not contain heavy elements that would exceed the limits specified in the Commission's toy standard, ASTM F963-11.
Extract: Cadmium. For cadmium, the studies examined showed cadmium in tree core samples and wood at levels below the ASTM solubility limit of 75 ppm. Studies that measured cadmium in hydroponic samples showed cadmium levels in root, stem bark, stem wood, and leaf parts above 75 ppm. In a similar manner, shoots grown in pots containing varying amounts of cadmium added, showed cadmium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit in leaves, stems, and roots. Chromium. For chromium, one study at a chromate-contaminated site found chromium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit of 60 ppm in roots, but DRAFT - December 2, 2015 10 measurements were below the detection limit for leaves, wood, and bark.

Summary: Briefing package for the Commission to vote to publish a FR notice with a new final rule for a determination for unfinished and untreated wood for ASTM heavy elements.
Extract: Cadmium. For cadmium, the studies examined showed cadmium in tree core samples and wood at levels below the ASTM solubility limit of 75 ppm. Studies that measured cadmium in hydroponic samples showed cadmium levels in root, stem bark, stem wood, and leaf parts above 75 ppm. In a similar manner, shoots grown in pots containing varying amounts of cadmium added, showed cadmium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit in leaves, stems, and roots. Chromium. For chromium, one study at a chromate-contaminated site found chromium concentrations above the ASTM solubility limit of 60 ppm in roots, but 11 measurements were below the detection limit for leaves, wood, and bark.

Summary: Report to the Committees on Appropriations of the House and Senate on the Status of CPSC Efforts to Provide Third Party Testing Cost Relief While Still Assuring Compliance
Extract: 7 The elements are antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and selenium. 8 The materials are unfinished woods, cotton, linen, wool, silk, bamboo, beeswax, and paper. The cost of the contract is $77,229. -6-recommendations for determinations, as well as conducting an economic analysis. In Fiscal Year 2015, CPSC staff intends to submit to the Commission a draft NPR and briefing package recommending that the Commission determine that certain materials do not contain any of the elements listed in Table 1 of the Toy Standard at concentrations above their solubility limit, and thus, do not require third party testing to assure compliance.

Extract: 3.2.4 Cadmium The following information on Factors 2 and 3 for cadmium is summarized from the ATSDR Toxicological Profile for cadmium (ATSDR, 2012a). Cadmium is a naturally occurring soft, silver-white element found in the earth's crust, and only exists in the Cd+2 state. ATSDR (2012a) lists and reports chemical properties for cadmium, cadmium carbonate, cadmium chloride, cadmium oxide, cadmium sulfate, and cadmium sulfide, of which cadmium chloride and cadmium sulfate are soluble in water.

Summary: Study on the Applicability of X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry for Use in ASTM F963 Total Element Screening
Extract: The heavy metals limited under this standard include antimony ("Sb"), arsenic ("As"), barium ("Ba"), cadmium ("Cd"), chromium ("Cr"), mercury ("Hg") and selenium ("Se"). The ASTM F963-11 standard test method for determining the soluble element content involves a 2-hour extraction in 0.07M hydrochloric acid and analysis of the extract solution by atomic spectroscopy. The standard also allows for total element content screening in which the test material is digested and analyzed by atomic spectroscopy, and if the total content of each of the elements is below the soluble limits prescribed, the material is considered to be in conformance with the standard, and no further testing is required.
