Webinar: United States Consumer Chemical Product Labelling

    Webinar Overview

    Unlike the European Union and United Kingdom, the United States (US) does not use any version of the GHS for the labelling of consumer chemicals (yet). The labelling of these products is covered by the US Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA), found in Title 16 of the US Code of Federal Regulations.

    The contents declarations are covered by the Federal Trade Commission Regulations and at the state level, NIST Handbook 130.

    This webinar will review the labelling requirements, in addition to the requirements for child resistant packaging.

    The webinar will cover the following:

    • What is a consumer product?
    • Hazard classification
    • Chemicals requiring special labelling
    • Required label elements
    • Placement, type size, conspicuousness
    • Poison prevention packaging
    • Net contents declarations (form, size, placement)
    • Brief review of California Proposition 65 warning requirements
