Proposition 65’s Proposition of Amendments

On November 16th, 2018, the Californian Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) proposed to amend the Prop. 65 obligations - Article 6 Clear and Reasonable Warnings Section 25600.2 Responsibility to Provide Consumer Products Exposure Warnings – as follows:

 

  • Clarification of the role of the ‘authorized agent’ for the business to which the manufacturer, producer, packager, importer supplier, or distributor are ‘selling or transferring a product’. The intent is clearly identify who in the supply chain is responsible for providing consumer product consumer warning;
  • Revision of the definition of ‘actual knowledge’ of the consumer product exposure that must specifically be of ‘sufficient specificity for the retail seller to readily identify the product that requires a warning’.

 

The proposed amended article 6 is available here.
