Chemical Regulations

Accessible by: anyone

We encourage lawmakers and regulators to use the best available science when making regulatory decisions for chemicals. Cleaning is essential to protecting human and environmental health. Since safety is a priority at ISSA, we support restricting the use of hazardous chemicals in cleaning products. Banning or unduly restricting the presence of chemicals based on bad science can impair the efficacy of cleaning products. As a result, public health and hygiene could be compromised. Policymakers should consider any unintended consequences that could result from such restrictions.

ISSA was an early supporter of green cleaning. We continue to support it by finding products that maintain efficacy while protecting human health and minimizing environmental impact.
