The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s (OEHHA) proposal to repeal the current Article 6 regulation and adopt a new regulation in Article 6 Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations was withdrawn on November 27, 2015. In choosing not to proceed with the January 2015 proposal, OEHHA introduced a new one, which provides guidance on the content of safe-harbor warnings for a variety of exposure situations and corresponding methods for providing those warnings. It would also add a specific section to the regulations addressing the relative responsibilities for providing warnings for businesses in the chain of commerce versus retail sellers of a given product. Public proceedings for the new proposal included a public hearing in January and a written comment period. Additionally, an updated chemical list for Proposition 65 is now available on the OEHHA website.
