Comment Deadline Approaches for Proposed Proposition 65 Changes

The deadline to submit comments on proposed changes to Proposition 65, a California law that requires warning labels on products known to cause cancer, is rapidly approaching. 

The proposed changes, recently announced by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), would require short-form warning labels to include at least one chemical on the label. This is a significant change from the current regulations, which allow businesses to use a generic short-form warning that does not identify any specific chemicals.

These changes would significantly impact businesses in the specialty automotive market selling products in California, and SEMA is urging members to take action and oppose them.

The OEHHA is holding a public hearing on the proposed rules on December 13. The public comment deadline is December 20. Click here to submit comments to OEHHA in opposition to the proposed changes.
