Household chemical or ingredient listing on label requirement
Question submitted on 8/18/09

We have been searching for labeling requirements of household cleaning products such as all purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, dishwash, laundry detergent, etc and have not been able to find the information. Would you please provide us some references on this subject? Thank you

Answer:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission regulates labeling of household chemicals under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. Links to specific products are available at http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/regsbyproduct.html. CPSC's general business information site is at http://www.cpsc.gov/businfo/businfo.html.
The Consumer Products Specialty Association has begun a Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative in cooperation with the Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association and the The Soap and Detergent Association. See http://www.cspa.org/public/media/info/cpici.html for more information.
