Session V: Regulations Update

Regulations and requirements for cleaning products can depend on what types of chemicals are included in the product, to how the products are marketed to consumers and more. This session will cover US regulatory requirements and the environmental impact these products have.

  1. US Regulatory update: Landscape of the Law Including Perspectives & Considerations

    Douglas Troutman | ACI General Counsel & VP, Government Affairs of American Cleaning Institute

    What’s new and developing in the realm of cleaning product ingredient regulatory issues?  What are the learnings since Governor Brown (D-CA) signed SB 258, the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act into California law? What about the potential for ingredient disclosure requirements in New York? Meanwhile, several domestic retailers and third parties have approached and engaged on ingredient disclosure issues.  The landscape continues to unfold across a range of venues. What are some aspects to consider? What open questions remain? What questions or comments do you have?

  3. USDA's Biopreferred Cleaning Products

    Kate Lewis | Deputy Program Manager, US Department of Agriculture, BioPreferred Program of USDA

    Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products. Biobased products include diverse categories such as lubricants, cleaning products, inks, fertilizers, and bioplastics. For purposes of the BioPreferred program, biobased products do not include food, animal feed, or fuel. This document provides more information about biobased content and how it is determined. Products participating in the voluntary labelling initiative have their biobased content measured using ASTM D6866 as part of the certification process.

    About the BioPreferred® Program

    Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the goal of the BioPreferred program is to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. The BioPreferred program was created by the 2002 Farm Bill and reauthorized and expanded as part of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the 2014 Farm Bill). The program's purpose is to spur economic development, create new jobs and provide new markets for farm commodities. The increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products reduces our nation's reliance on petroleum, increases the use of renewable agricultural resources, and contributes to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.

    It may not be clear, but ingredient transparency impacts product formulation and supply chain choices.

     Seventh Generation has over a decade of experience disclosing its formulated product ingredients to our consumers. Less clear to our consumers are the tribulations of formulating products whose ingredients are to be disclosed. The authors describe Seventh Generation’s ingredient communication standards, and the challenges of formulating products that meet them.
