As of August 30, 2018, new rules took effect for California Proposition 65 labels and signs.
Companies doing business or selling products in California are required to provide “clear and reasonable” warnings before knowingly exposing Californians to certain chemicals the state has identified as hazardous. This warning can be given in several ways, including labeling a consumer product, posting signs at the workplace, distributing notices at a rental housing complex or publishing notices in a newspaper.
