What is Prop 65?
Known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, Proposition 65 (Prop 65), requires businesses to inform consumers about exposure to specific chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. The State of California is required to publish and update the list of chemicals annually - a list that includes approximately 934 (https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/chemicals) chemicals since 1987. The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program. OEHHA, which is part of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA), also evaluates all currently available scientific information on substances considered for placement on the Proposition 65 list. More information can be found at https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/general-info/proposition-65-plain-language.
