California Legislation Would Require Additional Labeling Requirements on Some Automotive Products

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation has been introduced in the California legislature to require manufacturers of designated consumer products, including automotive products, to include all ingredients on the product label and online on the manufacturer’s website. Currently, ingredients in automotive products are not required to be listed on product labels. The bill would apply to “automotive products,” specifically, all chemically formulated products for maintaining the appearance of a vehicle, including products for washing, waxing, polishing, cleaning or treating the exterior or interior surfaces of a vehicle, but excluding automotive paint and paint-repair products.
