Guidance on Mercury Product Labeling & Phase-Out

Organization(s) Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association
Project Description The Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC), a program of NEWMOA, has developed and posted guidance on its website for manufacturers of mercury-added products to help them with compliance with state labeling and phase-out requirements. The states of Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont have requirements for labeling products that contain intentionally added mercury. The guidance provides a roadmap for companies that need to label their products. In addition, Connecticut, Maine, and Rhode Island have specific mercury product phase-out and collection system plan requirements. Most of the product bans that have been enacted focus on mercury fever thermometers, but there is a growing list of other products that are also the subject of these restrictions. The guidance material on the website describes how companies can comply with them.
