    1. Standard Review: ILFI’s standard review time for a Declare label is seven (7) business days, during which we will respond with any feedback, or confirmation that the label is ready to publish. Review times may be longer if the manufacturer requests technical support or selects the “Share for Feedback” option.

      1. Rush requests must be initiated with, and approved by ILFI, by contacting declare.support@living-future.org at which time we will walk you through the necessary steps to ensure prompt service.

    1. When you receive notification that your label is ready, do a careful and final review of the draft label in exchange.3eco.com
    2. Once approved, ILFI will publish the label to the public-facing Declare database and provide manufacturers with a copy.
