Proposition 65 compliance - California - USA
Proposition 65, also k现在n as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, was passed in 1986 to protect California residents from exposure to toxic substances through environmental exposure, drinking water or the products they purchase. California’s Office of Environmental Health and Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the program and ensures public awareness of toxic substances.
Substances listed under Proposition 65 are k现在n to the state to cause cancer, birth defects, reproductive or developmental harm. If a business fails to label products appropriately that contain listed substances under Proposition 65 regulations, they may be prosecuted by the California Attorney General, district or city attorneys, or any private group acting to protect the public interest. In Proposition 65 cases, the burden of proof is placed on the defendant rather than the plaintiff and violation fines can be substantial.
