 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:

  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
