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

 AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation  to  the
   regulation of ingredients in personal care products and cosmetics
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1.Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the
 "personal care and cosmetics act".
   § 2. 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.   Moreover,  regarding  the  safety  of
 using personal care products, it is most concerning that cosmetics regu-
 lation  in  the  United  States has not been significantly updated since
 1938.  This has led state national, and international  organizations  to
 develop  lists of chemicals of concern, including New York State's Toxic
 Chemicals in children's products and others. While federal law  requires
 personal  care product labels to list certain intentionally added ingre-
 dients, 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 coun-
 tries 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,
