Understanding California Proposition 65
Proposition 65 regulates substances listed by California as causing cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm in two ways. The first regulatory arm of Proposition 65 prohibits businesses from knowingly discharging listed substances into drinking water sources, or onto land where the substances can pass into drinking water sources. The second regulatory arm of Proposition 65 prohibits businesses from knowingly exposing individuals to listed substances without providing a clear and reasonable warning.
Cal Prop 65 states:
"No person in the course of doing business shall knowingly and intentionally expose any individual to a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without first giving clear and reasonable warning to such individual."
California Proposition 65 is changing every month. With over 400 judgments to date, manufacturers, distributors and retailers need to know how this effects their products. Attendees will get an update on the overall purpose of California Proposition 65 and the latest requirements.
