California Proposition 65 Signs

Businesses are required to provide a "clear and reasonable" California Proposition 65 approved warning before knowingly and deliberately exposing Californians to chemicals. By requiring that chemical information is provided, Proposition 65 allows others to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.

Cal Prop 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive hazards. Listed chemicals, found here, may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be byproducts of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust.

Use California Proposition 65 signs and labels to provide appropriate warnings and avoid a violation penalty as high as $2,500 per violation per day.

Products containing the California approved chemicals must comply with the new rules for 'clear and reasonable warnings' no later than August 30, 2018.
