Labeling Requirements Under Vermont's 1998 Law

The Vermont Legislature passed a law in 1998 to regulate the sale and disposal of mercury-added products. Vermont law requires certain categories of mercury-added products to be labeled prior to "sale for use" in the state of Vermont. The purpose of the Law is to reduce human and wildlife exposure to mercury by requiring manufacturers of mercury-added products to notify consumers of the product's mercury content through the use of a label on the product and/or packaging. The Law also prohibits the disposal of labeled products as solid waste, keeping mercury-containing wastes out of the solid waste stream.

A product labeling process flowchart has been developed to assist manufacturers in understanding Vermont's mercury-added products labeling law. The flowchart is a good starting point and a useful tool for manufacturers new to the labeling process and those having difficulty understanding their responsibilities under the law.
