Green Seal Extends Recertification for Cleaners

Thursday, February 19, 2009

Comment | More

Green Seal has extended the deadline for re-certifying products under its recently revised Environmental Standard for Industrial & Institutional Cleaners, GS-37 (2008). The new deadline for re-certification applications will be July 29, 2009; the deadline for having all such products re-certified will be Nov. 29, 2009

The original deadlines were April 29 and Aug. 29, respectively.

Green Seal is providing this three-month extension after receiving significant feedback from the cleaning industry that the current severe recessionary environment is causing unexpected and unprecedented pressures on businesses large and small.  A reasonable extension in the time for products to meet the new standard will help the industry in making any necessary changes to their products while also tending to the larger issues of the recession.  Green Seal believes that the small delay in getting more products that are compliant with the revised standard into the marketplace will not cause undue difficulty to purchasers, since a number of products are already in the process of being re-certified.

For more information, email certification@greenseal.org or call (202) 872-6400.
