Current Bill Summary

SB 1068 - This act requires the Department of Health and Senior Services to provide child care facilities with a comprehensive list of unsafe children's products. A new Section 210.1007 is created and requires initial notification for facilities on or before July 1, 2003, and quarterly thereafter. The Department must provide a comprehensive list of children's products which have been identified as unsafe by the Children's Product Safety Commission.

Upon notification, a facility must inspect its premises and immediately dispose of any unsafe products. The inspection must be documented by signing and dating the notification form and maintaining the form in the facility's files. During regular inspections, the department must document the facility's notification forms. If the Department discovers an unsafe product, the facility must be instructed to dispose of it immediately. If a facility fails to dispose of a product after notice is given, it will be a violation under the inspection. The Department may promulgate rules for the implementation of this section.
