Landscape – Chemical Regulations Evolve to Consumer Products

In key markets around the globe, governments have adopted regulatory frameworks to manage the risks that chemicals may pose, controlling the manufacture, importation, transportation, storage, use and marketing of chemicals, and are now increasingly focused on the regulation of consumer products. State governments in the United States and countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America are increasingly enacting Green Chemistry and product stewardship laws to regulate product design, ban or restrict the use of certain chemicals, expand environmental labeling and certification programs and manage end-of-life consumer and commercial products. In the United States, the International Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2) states have emerged as leaders in this regard: California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Washington.
