RULES & REGS

Prop 65 Update:
OEHHA Revises 'Clear and
Reasonable' Warnings
Daniel T. Bryant

New Warning Requirements
Under OEHHA's new warning requirements, businesses must
specifically identify at least one chemical for each endpoint -
cancer and/or reproductive toxicity - covered by the warning.
However, businesses are not required to list every chemical
for the safe harbor protection under the Prop 65 regulations.
Under the old warning requirements, it was sufficient for the
warning to state that the product contained "chemical[s] known
to the state of California" to cause cancer and/or reproductive
toxicity without specifically identifying the chemical(s).

C

alifornia's Office of Environmental Health Hazard
Assessment (OEHHA) adopted revisions on Aug. 16,
2016, to its "clear and reasonable" warning requirements
under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of
1986, commonly known as "Proposition 65" or "Prop 65." The
new warning requirements will affect virtually every business,
including ILMA members, selling or distributing products in
California.
OEHHA's new warning requirements are effective on Aug. 30,
2018, so the old warnings can be used until that time. The new
warning requirements mean businesses that sell products in
California must provide much more detail to consumers than in
current warnings.
Prop 65 applies to all businesses with 10 or more employees
doing business in California, and it requires them to warn any
person exposed to one or more of the 900 chemicals on
Prop 65 that OEHHA has determined may cause cancer, birth
defects and/or reproductive harm. If a business knowingly and
intentionally exposes any individual to a listed chemical without
giving a "clear and reasonable" warning, the company may be
subject to civil penalties and/or injunctive relief.

In addition to specifically listing
individual chemicals on the
warning, the new regulation
sets forth other content
needed. The warning must now
be preceded by a bold blackoutlined yellow triangle (the
triangle may be black if the sign
is not printed using yellow ink)
with an exclamation point in
the center and the following message:
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals
including [must include one or more chemicals] which are
known to the State of California to cause cancer.
For more information, go to www.p65warnings.ca.gov.
The regulation provides several options for companies to
transmit the warnings, including a shelf tag, a shelf sign, an
electronic device or a process that automatically produces a
warning to an individual prior to purchase, a label that complies
with OEHHA warning requirements or OEHHA requirements
for on-product warnings. Those warnings must be "displayed
