2015-08-03 70

Background 

Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The Proposition was intended by its authors to protect California citizens and the State's drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposures to such chemicals.

Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

 

 Main Requirement

1.Prohibition On Contaminating Drinking Water: No person in the course of doing business shall knowingly discharge or release a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity into water or onto or into land where such chemical passes or probably will pass into any source of drinking water, notwithstanding any other provision or authorization of law except as provided in Section 25249.9.

2.Warning Requirement: No person in the course of doing business shall knowingly and intentionally expose any individual to a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without first giving clear and reasonable warning to such individual, except as provided in Section 25249.10.

3.Limit requirement of hazard substances: California's 65 does not set limit to the material. The limit of substances in the products should refer to the existing lawsuit aiming at this kind of product or agreement. These files would contain limit requirement and test methods of certain substances for certain products.

4.Enterprise should compare the existing lawsuit of substances control requirements in such kinds products, and then refer to this lawsuit to control the hazardous  substances of  their products.
