OEHHA Releases Q&A Regarding Proposition 65 Regulations for Clear and Reasonable Warnings
In August 2017, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) released a Questions and Answers for Businesses (Q&A) document related to its August 28, 2016, adopted revisions to its Proposition 65 (Prop 65) Article 6 regulations covering “clear and reasonable warnings” requirements.
Information related to OEHHA’s past actions modifying Prop 65 warning regulations, including the August 28, 2016, adoption and the November 27, 2015, and March 25, 2016, proposal rules, is available on our website, key phrase Proposition 65.
The Q&A document provides important guidance on issues related to those responsible for providing warnings, the methods for providing warnings via the Internet or catalogs, short-form (previously “on-product”) warnings, and issues related to occupational and environmental exposure warnings. We note portions of the Q&A of particular significance in our full memorandum.
