Proposition 65 Scope: Commercial and Consumer Products

Question: Do the California Proposition 65 requirements apply only to consumer products, or do they also apply to commercial products sold in a business-to-business (B2B) context?

Answer: Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide a clear and reasonable warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical. The Proposition 65 requirements directly address warnings for consumers in the state of California, while California OSHA rules address the implications for workers safety and communication requirements.
