Massachusetts Holds Hearing On Proposed Regulations To Implement FR Law

As previously reported, on January 1, 2021 Massachusetts passed an anti-FR law limiting the use of antimony trioxide in mattresses despite ISPA and other industry group concerns.  The law went into effect on April 1, 2021, but the Department determined further regulations were required to clarify items. Recently, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issued draft regulations to implement the law on September 16, 2022.  ISPA attended a hearing on the matter on October 11 and plans to submit comments before the October 25, 2022 deadline.
