California Proposition 65
MyBrandPromo is committed to helping our clients promote their brand using the highest quality, safest products that meet quality and compliance standards and regulations as enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Communications Commission. We want to be sure you are up to date on recent regulations that may impact your programs.
As of August 30th, 2018, the State of California has changed product compliance regulations commonly known as Proposition 65. This proposition requires warning labels regarding chemicals that can cause cancer and reproductive toxicity. These regulations were established by California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). You can learn more by visiting their website https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov
What does this mean for you and your programs?
- You will want to know if the product you are buying will land in California. This can include items shipped to CA, or carried for tradeshows, etc.
- If the product you are purchasing does NOT pass Prop 65 testing, we will need to work with you on labeling your products. Please note that there may be a fee associated with the labels.
- Prop 65 warning labels are much more common now regardless of being in California. You will see them on Ecommerce and on products throughout the country
In an effort to stay ahead of the new regulations, it is MyBrandPromo’s policy that if we are knowingly shipping a product into California or know that it intends to land in California, we request labeling from the supplier when necessary.
Our goal is to educate our customers about Prop 65 and to keep them informed of any changes in the guidelines. We have educated all our sales and support staff to these changes, and we can partner with you if you have any additional questions.
