The Soap and Detergent Association (Washington, DC) held its yearly Issues Briefing and reviewed 2005 accomplishments, as well as announcing the launch of two Web sites in 2006. The Briefing came during the 2006 Annual Meeting and Industry Convention at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida, U.S.

In 2005, SDA said it successfully defended automatic dishwasher detergents against a series of phosphate ban proposals across the U.S., including critical legislative victories in Illinois and Vermont. SDA is currently facing a regional ban proposal in the Spokane River Valley of Washington State and a statewide ban, as well. A similar plan may be forthcoming in New York State.

SDA also announced two forthcoming Web sites.

SDA Science
SDA Science is a Web site showcasing the scientific, human health and environmental safety of cleaning products and their ingredients. The site at www.SDAscience.org is scheduled to launch in June 2006. The site will serve as a repository of scientific information – reports, articles, presentations, and studies – related to cleaning products and their ingredients.

Most of these documents have been developed by various SDA committees, consortia and research associates. The emphasis will be on such products and ingredients that are subject to government or regulatory supervision, especially substances that fall under the High Production Volume (HPV) chemical heading.

"We expect SDA Science to attract a broad global audience, including professionals involved in regulatory or legislative issues, academics, scientists, students, various interest groups and lay persons," said Richard Sedlak, SDA senior vice president of Technical and International Affairs.

Sustainability Webpage

A second site will highlight the sustainable development and product stewardship activities of its member companies, which are leaders in the cleaning product and oleochemical industries. The site will be available on SDA’s main website at www.cleaning101.com/sustainability as of March 2006.

"This webpage is an outgrowth of SDA’s Principles of Sustainable Development, which were adopted by our board of directors in 2004," said Ernie Rosenberg, SDA president and CEO. "SDA’s website will serve as a showcase for the longstanding and ongoing sustainability and stewardship efforts of our member companies."

The site will feature links to updated sustainable development and stewardship reports and documents issued by SDA’s member companies, a list of which is available at www.cleaning101.com/about/members.html.
