Chemical in Products Interagency Team
The Minnesota Department of Commerce, Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency established the Chemical in Products Interagency Team (CPIT). CPIT aims to reduce the amount of chemical hazards in products, their dispersion into Minnesota's environment, and their presence in the bodies of Minnesota citizens, especially our most vulnerable communities.
The three agencies work in partnership to:
- Monitor chemical hazards in consumer and business-to-business products and the environment;
- Educate citizens, vulnerable communities, and businesses about chemical hazards and how to avoid them if they so choose; and
- Accelerate the development and use of safer alternatives by businesses, state government, and citizens, enhancing Minnesota business growth wherever possible.
