May at-a-glance … regulations
Prop 65 comment deadline extended to gather more input
California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA)extended until May 24 the comment period for potential revisions to Proposition 65 “short-form” warnings for consumer products. NAFEM previously submitted comments recommending OEHHA adopt a safe-harbor provision freeing manufacturers from liability if they have documentation requesting the information from suppliers. NAFEM also recommended OEHHA delay the proposed 2021 effective date of new regulations by one-to-two years. Prop 65 requires warning labels to notify people of exposure to more than 1,000 chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
