News of the month

Every month, we bring together some of our top news stories from the last four weeks to highlight the biggest developments affecting product safety professionals. Take a look at the last month’s top stories below.

In August, we reported on the news that California lawmakers have advanced to the governor’s desk a broad measure to ban the sale of beauty and personal care goods created with PFASs, including hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) used as aerosol propellants.
