RG - How Proposition 65 Requirements Impact International Companies Selling in California

Question Posed:

What requirements does Proposition 65 place on international companies shipping their products to California?

Answer Provided:

Companies that sell products in California are required to comply with the regulation regardless of where the manufacturing occurs or the headquarters exist. The intent is to inform California citizens of the potential for exposure to substances known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. It does not restrict the use of the listed substances, it simply requires that a 'clear and reasonable' warning be displayed on or near the product per the regulation if the substance exceeds the safe harbor thresholds and risk of exposure exists.
