…US consumer product group HCPA is calling on New York to retract its recently finalised cleaning product disclosure policy, and says it will consider litigation to address the programme’s “significant issues”
… the Household & Commercial Products Association says that the state’s environmental conservation department (NYSDEC) “[refused] to work collaboratively with all stakeholders” in implementing the rules, dashing hopes for a “consistent national model” for cleaning ingredient disclosure.
…Instead, said the HCPA in a statement, the department “deliberately cultivated a complicated and increasingly contradictory set of disclosure rules at the behest of Governor Andrew M Cuomo, prompted by his desire to outdo California.”
