    We are excited to announce that we are revising both our Cleaning Products and Personal Care Products standards to update the requirements to reflect best practice in the marketplace today. As part of this process, we are calling on interested, experienced stakeholders for their input.

    Industry sectors are constantly evolving, and we believe it is vital that we continue to monitor our standards for relevance. This process includes consultation with a Technical Advisory Group (TAG). The TAG functions as an interactive group who work with GECA to assist in developing our standards and setting high sustainability goals that are still achievable.

    The TAG will be asked to provide input into draft revisions to the Cleaning Products (CPv2.2ii-2012) and Personal Care Products (PCPv4.1i-2013) standards over approximately six to ten weeks, excluding a public comment period of 60 days. We anticipate that this would require no more than 10 hours of your time.

    There will be no face to face meetings, with communications taking place digitally. Your valuable input will be used to develop the Draft for Public Comment, which will then be published on the GECA website.

    The TAG members work collaboratively with each other and GECA to ensure a thorough and robust standard is developed. Please note due to the nature of the TAG, your identity will be disclosed to other members. However, you may forward confidential feedback directly to GECA if necessary. Additionally, a list of TAG members may be disclosed on the GECA website as part of the revised standard.

    To produce high-quality standards the TAG should represent a wide range of interested stakeholders; manufacturers, consumers, government agencies, special interest groups and relevant industry bodies and associations. So, please register your interest if you have the experience needed to assist with this exciting new development.

    To confirm your interest, or nominate a representative, please email us. If you are unable to participate on the TAG at this time, you will still be able to view and comment on the draft standard when it is released for public comment.
