2VAC5-670-40. Ingredient statement.

A. Location of ingredient statement. The ingredient statement shall appear on the front of the label or that part of the label displayed under customary conditions of purchase, except in cases where the commissioner determines that, due to the size or form of the container, a statement on that portion of the label is impractical and permits the statement to appear on another side or panel of the label. When so permitted, the ingredient statement shall be in larger font and be more prominent than would otherwise be required. The ingredient statement shall run parallel with other printed matter on the panel of the label on which it appears and shall be on a clear contrasting background.

B. Names of ingredients. The well-known common name of the ingredient shall be given or, if the ingredient has no common name, the correct chemical name. If there is no common name and the chemical composition is unknown or complex, the commissioner may permit the use of a new or coined name which he finds to be appropriate for the information and protection of the user. If the use of a new or coined name is permitted, the commissioner may prescribe the terms under which it may be used. A trademark or trade name may not be used as the name of an ingredient, except when it has become a common name.

C. Percentages of ingredients. Percentages of ingredients shall be determined by weight, and the sum of the percentages of the ingredients shall be 100. Sliding scale forms of ingredient statements shall not be used. Plant incorporated protectant products bearing an ingredient statement approved by the EPA are permitted to have ingredient statements where the sum of the percentages of the ingredients do not equal 100.

D. Designation of ingredients. Active ingredients and inert ingredients shall be so designated, and the term "inert ingredient" shall appear in the same size font and be as prominent as the term "active ingredient."
