ISSA Guide to Regulation of Chemical Cleaners

December 3, 2015                                                         Contact: Bill Balek

ISSA has just released its latest edition of its popular Guide to the Regulation of Chemical Cleaning Products, which is available exclusively to members at

The labeling, hazard communication and other aspects of chemical cleaners are governed in the United States by a variety of federal agencies and regulations including but not limited to the following:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • Food and Drug Administration
  • Consumer Product Safety Commission
  • Department of Transportation

The specific federal agency and regulations that are applicable to a chemical cleaner is largely a function of how the product is marketed (i.e., to household consumers versus employers or institutional facilities), and where it is in the stream of commerce (i.e., products in the course of being transported).

ISSA’s Guide to the Regulation of Chemical Cleaning Products provides an overview of the major federal agencies that regulate chemical cleaners, and defines the specific product categories that fall within each respective agency.
