Title of document
Warnings for Exposures to Glyphosate from Consumer Products New Sections 25607.48 and 25607.49 (2 page(s), in English)

Description
Proposed rule - The new regulation would further the “right-to-know” purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as “Proposition 65”, and provide warning language tailored for exposures to glyphosate that exceed its NSRL. The content and methods provided in the proposed regulation are deemed “clear and reasonable” by the lead agency for purposes of the Act. The proposed warning content is also intended to provide balanced and understandable information to individuals who may be exposed to glyphosate. This proposed rulemaking would add Sections 25607.48 and 25607.49 to the Title 27, Article 6 Clear and Reasonable Warning regulations. The proposed regulations would provide safe harbor guidance for businesses that cause consumer product exposures to glyphosate that require a warning. The new regulation would further the “right-to-know” purposes of the Act and provide warning language tailored for these exposures. Businesses who choose to provide the safe harbor warning language for such exposures would comply with the Act, because the content and methods provided in the regulation are deemed “clear and reasonable” by the lead agency for purposes of the Act. The warning content is intended to provide balanced and understandable information to individuals who may be exposed to glyphosate at levels requiring warning.
