Get Help with California Proposition 65 Compliance from GreenSoft
Companies affected by California Proposition 65 are required to warn customers of potential exposure to the substances known to the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm.
The notification requirements were updated in August 2018. Among other changes, affected companies must now identify at least one regulated chemical that a specific product or location causes exposure to, as opposed to the previous general practice of simply warning of the presence of chemicals.
The list of these regulated substances is ever-changing and growing. The last prior addition to the regulated substances list was July 2019.
