New Proposition 65 Warning Requirement Takes Effect on 30 August 2018
The California Office of Environmental Health
Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) adopted the amendment to the clear and reasonable
warnings section of the Proposition 65 (Prop 65) regulations on 30 August 2016.
The new language required for the warning labels is effective on August 30, 2018. Retailers and manufacturers should take steps now to ensure their products are compliant to the new California Proposition 65 warning regulations.
Under Prop 65, businesses with 10 or more employees must provide “clear and reasonable” warnings before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to the listed chemicals in California. A generic Prop 65 warning that does not identify a specific chemical will no longer be sufficient under the new warning requirement.
Key changes to the warning formats for Consumer Product Exposure Warnings include:
For exposures to the listed carcinogens, the wording should be “…to cause cancer…”
For exposures to the listed carcinogen and the reproductive toxicant, the wording should be “… to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm…”
For exposures to the listed reproductive toxicants, the wording should be “…to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm…”

tag, shelf sign, catalogues or websites when no warning label is provided on
