Green Seal Inc. has announced its plan to develop 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.
