On October 15, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed the Cleaning Product Right To Know Act of 2017 (also known as California Senate Bill No. 258 or “CA SB 258”), making California the first state to require complete ingredient disclosure for cleaning products. Effective January 1, 2020, ingredient information will need to be disclosed online on the product manufacturer’s website, and starting January 1, 2021, on the product label itself.
Not all cleaning products are impacted by this legislation. A complete list of the Brady branded cleaning products impacted is available for download below. Product labels will also be updated, and additional information will be provided throughout the year related to these label updates.
Manufacturers of cleaning products sold in California must post the following information on their websites for each product:
A list of “intentionally added” ingredients in the product;
A list of all “nonfunctional constituents” present in the designated product at a concentration at or above 0.01 percent (100 parts per million);
The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) chemical identification number for all listed chemicals;
The functional purpose served by each intentionally added ingredient;
A hyperlink to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for each product. This requirement applies to designated products sold in California on or after January 1, 2020, unless they are manufactured prior to that date and are marked with the manufacture date (date codes are permissible). In addition, designated chemicals appearing on the California Proposition 65 list do not need to be listed on the website until January 1, 2023.
Manufacturers of cleaning products sold in California must also include this information on the label for each product:
A list of “intentionally added” ingredients in the product that are currently listed on any of a number of well-known lists of designated toxins, carcinogens, chemicals of high concern, etc.; and
The manufacturer’s toll-free telephone number and internet web site address.
