California Governor Jerry Brown in May 2013 issued principles for reforming Proposition 65. These new regulations became effective on August 30, 2018. Under these new regulations, a majority of the burden falls on suppliers and distributors. The most important changes focuses on the timing of the warning and the warning application for internet and catalog sales.
California Proposition 65, more popularly known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires businesses to notify people of California about significant amounts of known chemicals that cause cancer or lead to birth defects, or other reproductive harm caused by the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces or that are released into the environment via warning labels.
Where products are in violation of the regulation, all the parties involved in the chain of distribution—distributors, suppliers and end buyers are liable financially. Knowledge of these requirements and subsequent effective supply chain communication are key to meeting the potential Proposition 65 challenges.
