California OEHHA Issues Final Proposition 65 “Clear and Reasonable Warning” Regulations
On August 30 2016 the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) released its final amendments to the Proposition 65 warning regulations. The new warning standards may apply to any products sold in California or to any business operations in California. The warning rules are changing for manufacturers, distributors and retailers as, for the first time, specific rules will govern warnings for internet sales. The new warning standards apply to products manufactured on and after August 30 2018. Between now and then, companies may still use warnings which comply with the existing 2008 regulations.
