Watch a UL webinar on Tuesday, November 18th at 1:00 PM EST on California Proposition 65 regulation, which affects manufacturers of products sold in California that contain any one of hundreds of chemicals listed by the State as known carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Over the last decade, nearly 2000 settlements and more than $144.6 million in damages have been paid by California businesses as the result of litigation from aggressive plaintiff’s attorneys against products that have the potential to contain any of the listed chemicals.* This means that manufacturers are required to ensure that user exposure is below the acceptable levels set in the law, or to properly label products with the language “known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.”
Given the volume of settlements paid out, can you afford not to know your risk? The webinar discusses:
- What is Proposition 65?
- Prop 65 compliance requirements plus an update on the addition of DINP
- Statistics and key settlements affecting the furniture and bedding industries
- Approaches to compliance
