The editors of the Seller Beware Blog want to let our readers know about an upcoming webinar that may be of interest to you, entitled, “Proposition 65 -- Big Changes to California’s Warning Regulations”. [Full disclosure: Our firm, Arnold & Porter LLP, is sponsoring the event]
On August 30, 2016, California approved an overhaul of Proposition 65’s longstanding warning regulations. The regulatory amendment finalizes significant changes to the decades-old “safe harbor” warnings that businesses have relied upon for their compliance programs and which have been incorporated in thousands of Proposition 65 settlement agreements. The amendment stems from Governor Jerry Brown’s 2013 initiative to reform Proposition 65, and it followed four different regulatory proposals that received numerous public comments.
The regulatory amendment makes critical changes to the language of Proposition 65 warnings and the methods by which warnings are communicated. Businesses that provide Proposition 65 warnings, either under their own compliance programs or under a settlement agreement, will need to revisit their existing warnings and ensure future warnings are in compliance.
Please join our panel of experienced Proposition 65 attorneys and policy professionals to understand the significance of these major developments and their potential impact on your company’s compliance efforts.
This webinar for in-house counsel will take place on Monday, September 26, 2016 (10:00-11:00 am PT / 1:00– 2:00 pm ET).
