Of all the States, California has one of the most progressive and advanced sets of laws regulating toxic chemicals, industrial emissions and consumer goods. If California were a sovereign country, it would rank as the world’s fifth largest economy. That is why domestic and international manufacturers alike need to understand how Californian legislation impacts their products. Then they also need to know how to prepare to comply with an ever-changing regulatory environment.
Senate Bill No. 258 is yet another legislature intended to provide consumers and workers with greater transparency. It requires manufacturers of designated products, as well as specified employers, to disclose ingredient information. That encourages informed purchasing decisions and reduces public health impacts from exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals.
These designated products include: a finished product that is an air care product, automotive product, or general cleaning product. It also includes polish or floor maintenance product used primarily for janitorial, domestic, or institutional cleaning purposes.
Effective January 1, 2021 any ingredient listed on any of the 22 ‘designated lists’ will need to be displayed on the designated cleaning products’ labels. Get prepared and register now!
