California Publishes Q&A on New Prop 65 Warning Requirements

Last week, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) posted a new question and answer document on the new Proposition 65 Clear and Reasonable Warning regulations announced last year. The final rule, announced by OEHHA on September 2, 2016, will be effective on August 30, 2018.

The new rules require that warning labels, for the first time, identify specific chemicals to which the consumer may be exposed.
