California Legislation to Require Additional Labeling Requirements on Some Automotive Products to Be Considered April 21, 2015

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation 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 manufacturers’ website will be considered by the Assembly Business and Professions Committee, Tuesday, April 21, 2015. 

Currently, ingredients in automotive products are not required to be listed on product labels. After July 1, 2016, this bill would make it a crime to manufacture, distribute and sell at retail or wholesale automotive products that do not have a label listing all ingredients and a manufacturer webpage address at which product ingredient information can also be found. The measure would apply to 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.
