Description The Product Testing program at the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) has conducted studies to assess the levels of PCBs in products. This quality assurance project plan describes current standardized procedures for conducting product testing studies for PCBs in order to further study the extent to which products contain these chemicals.

In addition, Ecology will conduct a 2021 study to assess the levels of PCBs in some products in the “printing inks” product category. Data from this study will assist the Safer Products for Washington program in the next phase of their implementation process, which is to determine whether regulatory actions are needed for priority chemical-product combinations.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
