The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) released the proposed regulations with respect to Prop 65 warnings. A workshop is scheduled for April 14, 2014 which would encourage all interested parties to appear and comment. The deadline for comments on the draft regulation has been extended until 13 June and OEHHA staff will continue meeting with stakeholders in the meantime. The next draft of a warning regulation is expected this summer, with final adoption set for 2015.

The proposal would require elements for warnings:

  • Use of the signal word “WARNING”;
  • Use of the word “expose” to be consistent with the language in the statute;
  • The standard (Globally Harmonized System) pictogram for toxic hazards (only for consumer products other than foods, occupational and environmental warnings);
  • Disclosure of the names of up to 12 commonly-known chemicals that require warnings, such as lead and mercury, in the text of the warning;
    ● Acrylamide
    ● Arsenic
    ● Benzene
    ● Cadmium
    ● Chlorinated tris【tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl)phosphate(TDCPP)】
    ● 1,4-Dioxane
    ● Formaldehyde
    ● Lead
    ● Mercury
    ● Phthalates
    ● Tobacco smoke
    ● Toluene
  • A link to a new OEHHA website to allow the public to access more information relating to the warning, including additional chemicals, routes of exposure, and if applicable, any actions that individuals could take to reduce or avoid the exposure.
