California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) is a complex regulation for which it is difficult to find determinative answers. California\’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) recently updated its warning regulations that apply to products manufactured after August 30, 2018. As a result, many NASF members have received letters from customers that sell or distribute products in California asking if the products need Prop 65 warnings and labels.
Even if a part is plated outside California, but is sold or distributed in California, warning labels may be required. NASF is providing 3 documents that can help in determining whether warning labels are required for products that are sold or distributed in California.
