On August 30, 2016, the Office of Administrative Law approved the adoption of amendments to Article 6, Clear and Reasonable Warnings, of California Proposition 65 (Hereinafter referred to as “new regulation”) and provided a two-year transition period.


Namely, it will be operative on August 30, 2018, when thewarning should be labeled according to the new regulation other than the oldone.


However, many enterprises are still full ofdoubts about the new regulation in these days. QIT has sorted out the relevantrequirements. Starting from thebackground of California Proposition 65, QIT will help you get a deeper understanding of the new warning requirements.


What is California Proposition 65?


In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known by its original name of Proposition 65 (CA Prop65).


How to control the chemicals in CA Prop65?


CA Prop65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer orbirth defects or other reproductive harm, and toupdate the list at least annually. This list currently contains more than 900 chemicals, over 500 of them are known to cause cancer and over 300 to cause birthdefects or other reproductive harm.


CA Prop6 5requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Thesechemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, CA Prop65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. CA Prop65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.
