The TJX Companies Settlement 2019
The TJX Companies, Inc. Settles for $196,800.00
In June, 2019, the California Air Resources Board settled a case with The TJX Companies, Inc. (TJX) of Framingham, Massachusetts, for $196,800. TJX sold, supplied offered for sale, and/or manufactured 35 noncompliant consumer products in California that contained concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) exceeding the standards specified in California Consumer Product Regulations. In addition to the excess VOC emission violations, TJX imported into California 22 products that did not contain the required date of manufacture on the product containers. TJX made diligent efforts to cooperate with the investigation and to comply, including developing new business practices to ensure future compliance. These business practices include modifying relevant purchasing practices, delivering staff training, and implementing a vendor certification program for the relevant vendor population.
