California Prop 65 Compliance: An Overview
Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, protects the public from exposure to toxic chemicals in drinking water, the environment, and purchased products. Every year, California updates its list of chemicals that are toxic to reproductive health or known to cause cancer and birth defects. Businesses operating or selling in California must notify the public about the presence of these chemicals in their products.
Assent has helped hundreds of companies. We’re proud to work with the following organizations.
The Risks of Prop 65 Non-Compliance
Conforming to Prop 65’s complex labeling requirements takes time and resources — including internal resources that must dedicate time to data collection rather than the jobs they were hired to do.
The business stakes are also high, as non-compliance often results in lawsuits, reputational damage, and delays in material sourcing due to supply chain disruptions.
Learn more about recent enforcement actions that demonstrate why proactive compliance is a business must.
