Greg: Proposition 65 is specific to products being sold or manufactured in California and addresses substances which are known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. For employees, the employer is required to inform and train their staff about the chemicals they will be exposed. For products, the product's label must contain adequate warnings for the ultimate user that the product may contain substances that are known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warning requirement applies when exposure to the listed chemical is anticipated to result from the foreseeable use of the product. Under Proposition 65, a clear and reasonable warning is one whose message clearly communicates that the chemical in question causes cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm, and which is transmitted using a method to make the warning message available to the individual prior to exposure. The specific warning statement contained in the regulations does not preclude the use of other warning messages. A specific Proposition 65 statement does not have to be included on the label as long as the label information conveys adequate warnings. A copy of the list of Proposition 65 chemicals along with more information can be obtained on the web at www.prop65news.com or searching for Title 22, section 12000 at www.calregs.com.
