Green Seal Developing New Environmental Standard
Green Seal Inc. is currently developing an Environmental Standard for Specialty Cleaning Products (GS-52).
This new standard incorporates product categories not covered in Green Seal''s widely referenced Environmental Standard for Industrial and Institutional Cleaners (GS-37).
The stringent health and environmental requirements of GS-37 will serve as a basis for the development of GS-52.
The new standard will also include criterion relating to performance, packaging and labeling.
The product categories proposed to be included in GS-52 standard are: General disinfectant cleaners, sanitizing cleaners, bio-based cleaners, metal cleaners, graffiti removers, boat cleaners, deck cleaners, car cleaners, oven cleaners and other cleaning products sold for specific uses not covered under GS-37.
The draft proposed standard is scheduled to be released for stakeholder comment by the end of June.
A final standard will be developed by December 2010.
Please direct any questions related to the GS-52 standard development process to firstname.lastname@example.org.
