Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Fee Registration Information

Who is required to register?

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) annually identifies the feepayers subject to the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Fee; each feepayer's market share; and the amount of fee to be billed to each feepayer. The CDPH notifies the Board of Equalization (BOE) whom to register and bill. The BOE then issues notices of determinations (billings) that are due and payable on April 1st for the preceding calendar year.

A fee is imposed on manufactures and other persons formerly, presently, or both formerly and presently engaged in the stream of commerce of lead or products containing lead, or who otherwise are responsible for identifiable sources of lead, which have significantly contributed historically, currently contribute, or both have significantly contributed both historically and currently to environmental lead contamination.

  • Childhood Lead - Architectural Coatings (CA)
  • Childhood Lead - Motor Vehicle Fuel Distributors (CL) and
  • Childhood Lead - Lead Releasers (CO).
