What is California Prop 65?warning

  1. Prop 65 is a proposition that requires all businesses to provide a clear and reasonable warning before exposing individuals in California to any chemical listed by the state for its potential to cause cancer or reproduce toxicity.
  2. The warning must name at least one of the chemicals for which the warning is being provided
  3. Specify the chemicals which is known to cause cancer or reproductive harm
  4. Include a triangular symbol (available for download here) to the left of the warning and the word “WARNING” in all capital letters and bold type
  5. New regulations go into effect August 30, 2018
  6. If a business is found to be in violation of Proposition 65, a court may order the business to stop committing the violation. The business is also subject to civil penalties of up to $2,500 per day for each violation.

Compliance with Prop 65 can be challenging given the complexity of the new requirements, but the best way to manage your company’s Prop 65 liability is to minimize the risk of being sued in the first place.
