Detergent Regulations


In October 2005 the Detergent Regulations* came into force across Europe. Essentially it means that all manufacturers of cleaning products containing detergents have to publish their product ingredients on a web site.

"Detergent" means any substance or preparation containing soap and/or other surfactants intended for washing and cleaning processes.
