California’s Proposition 65: The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
California’s Prop 65 law has been in effect since 1986. The law requires the state to maintain a list of chemicals that cause cancer or reproductive harm. It also requires businesses that sell products with such chemicals to inform the California public of the risks of using their products or services.
Prop 65 has recently been in the news because the state changed its warning label requirements. You can read all about them here, but essentially, if a product has a chemical in it, it needs a label, from highly toxic industrial products to your morning latte.
How Prop 65 Affects Your Business
If you sell or manufacture products in the State of California, you are subject to the rules of Prop 65. Every product that contains a listed chemical and sold in California must include proper labeling. Sound like a logistical nightmare for your production line? That’s because it is.
