Office of Environmental Health Hazard enforcing new law changes to Proposition 65 August 30th, 2018
On August 30,2018 the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment will begin enforcing law changes to the Proposition 65 rules. Any business who exposes people to chemicals on the Prop 65 list without providing “clear and reasonable” warnings will be subject to citations and fines. Three types of exposures require the warnings, consumer product, occupational and environmental. Areas where these Prop 65 chemicals are used are both rural and urban. Agricultural pesticides, turf applications, ornamental, dyes that “set” the colors in carpet paints, glues are some examples. Active or inert ingredients that are on the Prop 65 list must be covered and documented.
