California Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is possibly one of the most expansive state environmental laws for the chemical industry. Officially entitled, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Health & Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., requires persons conducting business in the state to provide a clear and reasonable warning in sign or label before exposing consumers or employees to chemicals listed as carcinogens or reproductive toxins under the law.
