Proposition 65 – Article 6

Proposition 65  Article 6: On August 30, 2016, California’s Code of Regulations governing the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as “Prop 65”) changed with the adoption of amendments to Article 6 (§ 25601 et seq.) in Title 27 of the Code.

Businesses falling under the regulation must give “clear and reasonable warnings” to individuals before “knowingly and intentionally exposing them to chemicals listed as known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.” Businesses must fully comply with the amended version by August 30, 2018, but during the two year transition period, may comply with either the old or the new Article 6 provisions.

This webinar discusses an overview of Proposition 65, its impact on environmental and occupational exposures and on consumer products. It summarizes the major changes, considerations and conclusions that can be drawn from the regulation.
