LAST CALL! California Cleaning Product Right To Know
By: Kirsten Alcock, Manager of Product Safety, email
On October 15, 2017, the California Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 (Senate Bill: SB258) was signed by Governor Jerry Brown. As of right now, the first of the two deadlines have passed: Website disclosure was required on January 1, 2020. The next requirement is due in UNDER ONE MONTH!
Now is the time to act if you haven’t done so already! Label creation not only needs to go through your regulatory department but it also must go through marketing. The overall label must meet compliance with current Federal regulations impacting your product for the US but also California Cleaning Product Right To Know if you sell to that State.
This law required Manufacturers and Distributors of Consumer & Commercial air care (includes air fresheners, reed diffusers), automotive cleaning/maintenance, general cleaning, polish, and floor maintenance products to provide a specific list of the chemicals used in their products on their website. There are no exemptions for small labels or small businesses. The next deadline pertains to labels and is coming up in UNDER ONE MONTH!
Are your labels ready?
Do you understand the requirements for your Label Disclosure that is required on January 1, 2021? Between now and then, do you have time to look into the 23 different designated lists?
Dell Tech Laboratories has created an Excel® based search tool that will allow you to quickly and easily search all your CAS numbers against all of the Designated Lists. Create your product’s label and website disclosure in minutes instead of hours. For more information on how to use our tool, please see the following video produced by Joe McCarthy.
If you’re not interested in the tool but would still like our help to identify the components as you only sell a handful of products, we can also help you. As part of our Enhanced CPSC classification service, we not only classify your product properly for US consumers but provide you a document that contains your mandated label information for California. This is a process that can take hours to research without the proper tools set in place.
Contact us today to ensure that your labels are compliant with both California and the Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission. We have the in-house expertise to help you become compliant and keep you that way. Do not take the risk of being caught with non-compliant labels.
