The US State of Minnesota enacted a law in 2015 that restricts four flame retardants, TDCPP, DecaBDE, HBCDD and TCEP, in children’s products and upholstered residential. These restrictions went into effect in July 1, 2018 for manufacturers or wholesalers and July 1, 2019 for retailers.


The Governor of Minnesota has signed bill HF 359 (2019-2020) which amends this flame retardant law by expanding the scope of products to include mattresses and residential textiles, with some exemptions. It also expands the flame retardants to all organohalogenated flame retardant chemicals. These changes become effective in July 1, 2021 for manufacturers or wholesalers and July 1, 2022 for retailers.
