Labeling Hazardous Chemicals: The Impact CA's Proposition 65 Requirements Will Have on Your Compliance Obligations

Live Webinar: Wednesday, April 18, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn what businesses operating in California need to do to meet new, stringent Proposition 65 requirements taking effect concerning hazardous chemical labeling.

Major changes are going into effect under California’s Proposition 65 (Prop 65—also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986), which affects all in-state manufacturers and many businesses across the United States that do business in California.

The new regulations take effect on August 30, 2018. Currently there are two compliant sets of regulations on the books. Currently, businesses may comply with the regulations in effect as of August 30, 2016, or the provisions of the new regulation to allow for a reasonable transition period for businesses to begin providing warnings under the new rules. Once August 30, 2018, comes around though, all companies must comply with the new regulations. It’s important to note that the new regulations have greater specificity in the information required to be included in the warnings, acknowledge the availability of new communication technology, and require warnings to be in English and other languages in some circumstances.

Join us on April 18th with Alison Torbitt, a skilled environmental lawyer who has helped many organizations develop and implement cost-effective and compliant Proposition 65 programs. She has been closely monitoring the new changes to the regulations, and will provide attendees information on what exactly will be required, when the new requirements will go into effect, and how best to develop and implement a program that meets the new requirements.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Understand California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, known as Proposition 65 
  • Assess the most recent changes to Proposition 65, including newly listed chemicals (including Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)), testing parameters for cancer and reproductive toxicity, additional guidance for parking garages, hotels, amusement parks and more 
  • Identify timelines and key dates associated with Proposition 65 
  • Evaluate implications and options available for assuring ongoing compliance with Proposition 65 
  • Choose the content required in the new Prop 65 warning signs 
  • Assess key terms and definitions including clear and reasonable warnings, acceptable transmission, CA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) 
  • Determine the best Proposition 65 compliance strategy for your organization
