Green Seal, a partner of the Green Sports Alliance, is inviting comment on proposed revisions to nine cleaning product standards. The third-party environmental certification organization welcomes comment from a diverse group of stakeholders including product manufacturers, public health experts, environmental organizations, and other interested parties. The comment period will be open through Monday, January 16, 2017. Those interested in commenting can register to submit feedback and view all relevant documents via an online forum.
The proposed revisions are intended to improve consistency, clarity, and to ensure that the requirements are practical for manufacturers while still maintaining current leadership levels of environmental and human health protection. Additionally, some standards require updates to account for changes in the market and the commercial availability of new technologies.
In most cases, the proposed revisions are not expected to immediately require reevaluations of currently certified products or changes in their formulations. Complete details of the standard revisions can be found here.
