Existing law regulates the labeling and use of various consumer products, including toys and toxic household products.

Existing law, administered by the Department of Toxic Substances Control, prohibits the management of hazardous waste, except in accordance with the hazardous waste laws or the regulations adopted by the department. A violation of these laws is a crime.

This bill would prohibit the manufacture, sale, or distribution of a designated consumer product, as defined, unless the manufacturer discloses each ingredient, as defined, contained in the product, identified in a prescribed manner, by posting that information on the manufacturer’s Internet Web site, and provides the Web site and page address on the product label, along with a prescribed statement.

The bill would, under specified circumstances, allow nondisclosure of ingredients defined as trade secrets.Existing law requires the department to establish the Toxics Information Clearinghouse, to provide a decentralized, Web-based system for the collection, maintenance, and distribution of specific chemical hazard trait and environmental and toxicological end-point data.

This bill would specify that it does not limit, supersede, duplicate, or otherwise conflict with the authority of the department to fully implement prescribed provisions relating to the operation of the clearinghouse.The bill would declare that its provisions are severable and if any provision of the bill is held invalid, that invalidity would not affect other provisions or applications that can be given effect without the invalid provision or application.

By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. Hide
