substance is banned pursuant to federal law by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety

Commission, the Cabinet may, if it deems the article to be dangerous to public

health, quarantine the article pursuant to KRS 217.700.


      Section 3.

Variance between State and Federal Regulations. If a variance exists between

the regulations adopted under KRS 217.650 to 217.710 and those adopted under 15

USC Sec. 1261-1276, compliance with the federal regulations shall be deemed

compliance with the provisions of the administrative regulations adopted under

KRS 217.650 to 217.710.

Procedures for Hazardous Substances. The test procedures prescribed under 15

USC Sec. 1261-1276 and federal regulations shall be applicable to all
