S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6077 2019-2020 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E May 16, 2019 ___________ Introduced by Sen. RIVERA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Environmental Conservation AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the regulation of ingredients in personal care products THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. There are thousands of chemicals used in personal care, household cleaning, and other consumer products, many of which have never been fully tested for potential impacts on human health or the environment. This has led national and international organizations to develop lists of chemicals of concern, including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Household Cleaning Product Ingredient Disclosure Program (HCPIDP). While federal law requires personal care product labels to list certain inten- tionally added ingredients, information concerning potential health effects is not widely available and certain categories of chemical ingredients are exempt from labeling requirements. Furthermore, over 40 countries, including countries in the European Union, Japan, Cambodia, and Vietnam, have stricter restrictions on chemicals in personal care products than does the United States. Therefore, the legislature finds and declares that federal disclosure requirements are inadequate to educate and protect consumers, and that it shall be the policy of the state to require the personal care product industry to more fully disclose ingredients and identify ingredients published as chemicals of concern on lists identified by the commissioner such as the HCPIDP or other national or international lists. § 2. Article 37 of the environmental conservation law is amended by adding a new title 10 to read as follows: TITLE X REGULATION OF PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS SECTION 37-1001. DEFINITIONS. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
