Hearing and Comment Period - Proposition 65 Clear and Reasonable Warnings

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) proposes to repeal the current Article 6 regulations and adopt new regulations in Article 6 in Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations. These new regulations would further the “right-to-know” purposes of the statute and provide more specific guidance on the content of safe harbor warnings for a variety of exposure situations, and corresponding methods for providing those warnings. It also would add a specific section to the regulations addressing the relative responsibilities for providing warnings for businesses in the chain of commerce versus retail sellers of a given product.
