OEHHA Provides Guidance on Proposition 65 Compliance for Warning Requirements and Chemical Listings

Your substances


The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has released updated information letters to provide guidance on compliance with California's Proposition 65. Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires businesses to notify Californians about significant amounts of chemicals in products or released into the environment that may cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

The information letters aim to assist businesses in understanding their responsibilities under Proposition 65, including providing clear instructions on warning requirements, identifying listed chemicals, and understanding the implications of recent regulatory updates. OEHHA's guidance helps ensure that businesses can effectively communicate risks to consumers and comply with legal obligations.

Stakeholders, including manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, are encouraged to review these letters to stay informed about their compliance duties. The updated guidance is part of OEHHA’s ongoing efforts to protect public health by ensuring transparency and accountability regarding chemical exposures.
