Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 (California)
On October 15, 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown signed California Senate Bill (SB) 258, the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017, which will require manufacturers of cleaning products to disclose certain chemical ingredients on their product labels and website. The law will be phased in over the next three years. The ingredients must be posted online by manufacturers in 2020, and on product labels by 2021. SB 258 applies to any finished product that is an air care, automotive, general cleaning, or polish or floor maintenance product. Excluded products include personal care products like toothpaste, shampoo and hand soap. This is the first cleaning product disclosure legislation in the country and will likely result in new labeling of cleaning products sold nationwide.
US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulations apply to those consumer cleaning products which are not registered with the Environmental Protection Agency or Food and Drug Administration. Strict precautionary labeling requirements for chemicals used in consumer products are set out in the 16 CFR 1500 series of regulations. All products that contain any hazardous substance which may cause substantial bodily injury or illness are subject to CPSC’s labeling requirements. These complex regulations include specific exemptions, mandatory labeling elements, and reporting and packaging requirements.
Household Product Labeling Act 2009
The Household Product Labeling Act 2009 revised how consumer cleaning products must be labeled in the US. The products covered by the act include household cleaning products, air fresheners and deodorizers, floor and furniture polish, dishwashing soap, drain cleaners, laundry detergent and dryer sheets, epoxies, paints or stains, and any other similar consumer product designated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
