California’s Proposition 65 is one of the most misunderstood regulations in the US. With over 800 chemicals on the Proposition 65 list and hundreds of enforcement actions each year, figuring out how to address it within your compliance program can be extremely challenging. In this session with Matthew Nudell from TÜV Rheinland, we will clarify what the law actually requires, as well as the most common approaches that companies can take to mitigate their risk of being involved in Prop 65 enforcement actions. Special attention will be given to new labeling requirements that have come into effect in recent years, and the recently proposed changes to those warning requirements that California is seeking to enact.
