Maintaining over 100 Years of Success Through...


We are a business partner to approximately 250 companies seeking to collaborate with stakeholders on issues critical to the future of formulated products. We work directly with legislators, regulators, non-governmental organizations and retail partners to ensure the future of safe and effective products. What differentiates CSPA from many other trade associations is its proven success in bringing diverse groups together to create beneficial policy with a strong scientific basis. Our core dynamic is centered around a collaborative mindset and teamwork within our industry.


Scientific, legal, advocacy, research, policy and communication experts on the CSPA staff have successfully represented the growing household and institutional products industry for over 100 years. They are experienced and credentialed leaders in their fields with a depth of knowledge on the legislative, regulatory and commercial issues affecting all stages of the product supply chain. The CSPA attorneys, scientists and advocacy professionals who manage seven product divisions and three affiliate organizations are well respected by their counterparts at both regulatory agencies and on Capitol Hill.


Over 75 different member-based task groups and committees and a very active Board of Directors manage CSPA and direct its strategic focus. An array of training workshops, seminars, webinars and member conferences held throughout the year bring industry leaders, technical experts and key decision makers together to strategize about future challenges facing consumer packaged goods and institutional products companies. CSPA is widely recognized for its willingness to look “beyond the next quarter” at long-term sustainability issues surrounding the products it represents.
