California Prop 65

What does a business need to understand about Prop 65?

California initially passed Proposition 65 (which was called “The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986”) as a voter initiative in 1986. The primary issue facing business owners today is the provision of a consumer notice which identifies the specific chemicals or compounds contained within a product or food which are known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.

While there have been various interpretations of the laws and legal proceedings to hammer out the details, a final date for businesses to come into compliance with specific notifications associated with Prop 65 has been established. It is August 30, 2018. After this date all businesses – brick and mortar or online – with sales into the State of California must be in full compliance with Prop 65 or face substantial financial and legal consequences.
