The cover of Environmental Defence's submission on the draft Strategic Assessment of Climate Change

About The Submission:

The health and environmental impact of chemicals in consumer products has been a significant public issue for many years. The Federal Government had promised to move forward by spring 2022 with a mandatory labelling requirement when potentially harmful substances are found in everyday products. Implementing this will require a regulatory approach based on established precedents in comparable jurisdictions and target dates that allow for the due diligence associated with similar regulatory measures. In this submission of comments re: NOI on the labelling of toxic substances in products, including toxic flame retardants, we urge the Federal government to reconsider this proposed approach to consumer product labelling and develop a meaningful initiative that meets or exceeds the previously stated commitment on this issue.
