GLRPPR Sector Resource: Retailer Portal: Tools to Evaluate Chemical Ingredients in Products

Title:
Retailer Portal: Tools to Evaluate Chemical Ingredients in Products

Abstract:
The tools included in the Retailer Portal are either free or commercially available and enable retailers to evaluate chemicals or chemical-containing products for their potential human health and environmental impacts and identify chemicals or materials that are regulated or are of concern and not yet regulated. Most of the evaluative systems go beyond ensuring compliance with existing environmental regulations and provide additional information to retailers and manufacturers whose goal is to "green" their product lines by selling chemicals and chemical-containing products that are safer throughout the supply chain. A weakness of all tools and systems assessed is a lack of available data on product chemical content and toxicity through supply chains.
