California’s Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (aka Proposition 65) has been a thorn in the side of virtually every industry in the country since its inception. Notionally intended to warn and protect consumers and others from “exposure to toxic chemicals,” it has instead turned into an abusive vehicle for promoting, in the words of Governor Jerry Brown, “frivolous, shakedown lawsuits” by private plaintiff bounty hunters. On August 30, 2018, a series of new Proposition 65 warning regulations went into effect which require extraordinary diligence on the part of every entity in the chain of commerce. This program discusses those changes and provides practical compliance advice.
