This news update on Title 27 is brought to you by OEHHA

On April 14, 2014, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) will hold a public workshop for the purpose of discussing a possible regulatory action to change the existing regulation governing Proposition 651 warnings.  If a regulation is eventually adopted, it would replace the existing OEHHA regulation.  A potential draft regulation and a potential draft Initial Statement of Reasons are available for public review on OEHHA’s web site.  It is OEHHA’s intent to make Proposition 65 warnings more informative and meaningful while providing certainty for businesses on the content and methods for providing warnings.

OEHHA is the lead agency for implementation of Proposition 65.  As part of its responsibilities, OEHHA administers the regulations implementing the Act.  These regulations can be found in Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations, sections 25102 through 27001.  The existing regulations concerning clear and reasonable warnings are codified in Article 6, section 25601, et seq. http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65/law/pdf_zip/RegsArt6.pdf.

OEHHA carefully considered the public comments and developed a potential draft regulation and a potential draft Initial Statement of Reasons.  These two documents should be considered together as the Statement of Reasons explains the purpose and intent of the proposal.  OEHHA is seeking public input concerning this potential regulation.
