The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) held a public meeting on May 7, 2015 by to discuss the potential listing of BPA in the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) list of chemicals. The DARTIC determined that BPA was clearly shown to cause reproductive toxicity.
Why It Matters
Effective May 11, 2015, BPA is now listed under Proposition 65 as known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity. Under Proposition 65, once a chemical is listed businesses have 12 months to comply with the warning requirements.
Therefore, manufacturers of consumer products for sale in the state will be required to include a warning label on items containing BPA by May 11, 2016.
