New disclosure rules passed by New York State apply to soaps, detergents and other cleansers used for households, dishes, utensils and fabrics.

New rules passed in New York State will require manufacturers to reveal the chemical ingredients in household cleaning products. Companies must also disclose internal research conducted on whether ingredients have any potential impacts on human health and the environment.

Under the Household Cleansing Product Information Disclosure program, this information must be posted on Internet web sites, initially in July 2019, with further details added by July 2020 and January 2023. There are exceptions for information considered a trade secret.
