The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has postponed the enforcement of certain provisions of the Household Cleaning Product Information Disclosure Program, authorized by the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) 35–0107 and 6 NYCRR 65.

Provisions of the said program requires manufacturers to disclose intentionally added ingredients other than fragrance ingredients, and nonfunctional ingredients present above trace quantities.

NYS DEC will not enforce the July 1, 2019 milestone requirement for manufacturers employing more than 100 people for a period running from July 1st, 2019 to October 1, 2019. Instead, it will begin enforcing any violations of the above required disclosure on October 2, 2019.

Unaffected, however, are the June 2020 requirements for smaller employers to comply, and for manufacturers to begin disclosing fragrance ingredients and nonfunctional byproducts and contaminants.
