Prop 65 New Rules
Started August 2018


Your business is in danger of heavy fines and legal costs (including the plaintiff's lawyer fees) if you sell products that Californians, "purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment..."


Even if you do not sell directly in California! If your products come into contact with people in California-- whether you make it or sell it! Your company does not have to be a California company. You need to be prepared.

For instance, if you are selling dietary supplements that have any ingredients on the 900 item List (which for example, includes a form of Aloe) you need to know if the ingredient is above or below the "safe harbor" level.


It's no longer enough to post a general notice since the rule will now require a strong warning listing the specific ingredients on the List.
