What's New - ANLA Guidelines Feb 05
Share |

ANLA releases compliance guidelines.

In December the American Nursery & Landscape Association released a set of compliance guidelines to help its members and other industry businesses satisfy consumer product labeling regulations. Created by a joint ANLA and Society of American Florists task force, the guidelines present recommendations for green industry specific solutions for meeting compliance requirements. A document, Industry Guide to Marketing Container Plants, was mailed to ANLA members late last month and is available to the public online at www.anla.org.

The joint task force was formed earlier this year to research the implications of a weights and measures complaint lodged in Pennsylvania. The complaint addressed accurate reporting of container size. The complaint was made as several other weights and measures jurisdictions around the U.S. had already begun to examine the green industry for container labeling requirement compliance. ANLA, along with other industry associations including SAF, OFA, the North American Horticultural Supply Association and the Produce Marketing Association, met with regulatory advisors from the National Institute of Standards and Technology over the past year to understand the ramifications of this increased attention. That work resulted in the creation of compliance guidelines.

ANLA has undertaken the work to provide its members and the industry with tools to comply with these regulations and avoid the potential of significant fines. ANLA and the other associations will serve as a resource for their members and are available to provide additional guidance and clarity on how these regulations apply specifically to their businesses.
