60,000 parts per million of lead. To assure  consistent  application  of
these controls to all jewelry, specific technical standards and controls
must be specified.
  §  2.  The  environmental  conservation law is amended by adding a new
section 37-0115 to read as follows:

FOLLOWING DEFINITIONS:
  1.  "BODY PIERCING JEWELRY" MEANS ANY PART OF JEWELRY THAT IS MANUFAC-
TURED OR SOLD FOR PLACEMENT IN A NEW PIERCING OR A MUCOUS MEMBRANE,  BUT
DOES  NOT  INCLUDE  ANY PART OF THAT JEWELRY THAT IS NOT PLACED WITHIN A
NEW PIERCING OR A MUCOUS MEMBRANE.
  2. "CHILDREN" MEANS CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF TWELVE.
  3. "CHILDREN'S JEWELRY" MEANS JEWELRY THAT IS MADE FOR,  MARKETED  FOR
USE  BY, OR MARKETED TO, CHILDREN AND INCLUDES JEWELRY THAT MEETS ANY OF
THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:
