Requirements for Transitioning from Short Form Warning Labels to Long Form Warning Labels

Question Posed:

Is it mandatory to transition from short-form warning to the longer “safe-harbor” warning labels on finished goods?

Answer Provided:

Upon completion of due diligence, the existing labels may be amended to the long form including the actual substance and hazard or updated short form with just the specific hazard.  

Note: Customers, regulatory authorities, and/or plaintiff could challenge labeling decisions, so the customer needs to maintain up-to-date supporting documentation to substantiate the presence of Proposition 65 listed substances.
