California's Proposition 65: What You Need to Know About the Impending Regulation Changes
Substantial amendments to California Proposition 65 regulations take effect on August 30, 2018. The new regulations change the requirements for what constitutes a reasonable warning under California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. Failure to comply with the new regulations can result in hefty penalties, including a statutory penalty of up to $2,500 per day per violation, injunctive relief, and attorneys' fees.
Please join Ballard Spahr attorneys to discuss the amended regulations and related enforcement issues. Our panel will discuss:
Changes to the regulations' warning requirements and how to best prepare your company to comply;
The legal responsibilities under the amended regulations for manufacturers and retailers; and
Penalties for non-compliance, including civil litigation, and settlement trends.
