Proposition 65: Testing for Newly Listed Chemicals

Question:

Do the recent additions to the Proposition 65 list of chemicals mean that companies will be required to immediately get their products retested?

Valerie Kuntz:

Under Proposition 65, companies are given a one-year grace period to meet new requirements when substances are added to the list. Testing may also be an overly expensive and/or technically impractical method of obtaining composition information. Companies should first attempt to identify risks by assessing supplier-provided documentation or other forms of available proof of compliance.
