Please join us for a complimentary 30-minute webinar. 

Proposition 65 was enacted in 1986 to protect California's residents from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. While Prop 65 has increased public awareness of the effects of exposure to these toxins, it remains controversial due to the financial burden placed on the companies whose products are sold in California, as well as the enforcement methods employed by private "bounty hunter" law firms.  

As a result, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment recently approved amendments to this Proposition. The new regulations provide, among other things, more specificity regarding how retailers and manufacturers must provide warnings, particularly for online sales. Companies must comply with these regulations by August 30, 2018.

This presentation will provide an overview of the Prop 65 basics and address the new Prop 65 regulations - what has changed, how to comply and what to expect moving forward.
