Changes to product formulation invalidate the Declare label and require the manufacturer to resubmit documentation and pay a product license fee.
To encourage companies to develop nontoxic alternatives, the fee is waived if the change is to remove a Red List ingredient or provide additional transparency. Manufacturers that change their product chemistry and are able to move up a Declaration Status or remove all proprietary ingredients are eligible for the fee waiver.
Changes to product chemistry that do not result in an improvement in Declaration Status will be subject to a mid-cycle update fee. Requested changes to a product name, listed manufacturer, life expectancy, end of life options, or company name are subject to a partial label redraft fee.
