Prior to the amendments, non-retail suppliers subject to Proposition 65 had to apply a warning label to the product or provide written notice of the warning requirement to the authorized agent of the retail seller of the products. Now, if businesses choose to send a written notice rather than apply a label, they can provide that notice to either the authorized agent for the business to whom they are selling the product or the authorized agent for the retail seller.
If a written notice is submitted, it must:
• State that the product may result in an exposure to one or more listed chemicals;
• Include the exact name or description of the product or specific identifying information for the product such as a Universal Product Code or other identifying designation;
• Include all necessary warning materials such as labels, labeling, shelf signs or tags, and warning language for products sold on the internet; and
• Be renewed annually during the period in which the product is sold in California by a retail seller.
The recipient of the written notice must confirm receipt, either electronically or in writing.
