Proposition 65: Recent Developments and Practical Strategies
December 11, 2018
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST(1:00 p.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. PST)

Thirty years after its enactment, California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (“Proposition 65”) remains an undiminished irritant to businesses that supply or sell products used in California. Proposition 65 is a “right-to-know” statute that requires everyone in the chain of commerce to ensure that California residents receive “clear and reasonable” warnings before being exposed to a growing list of chemicals—a list that now numbers approximately 900 chemicals.

On December 11, K&L Gates will present a webinar discussing important recent changes, current trends, and ongoing compliance strategies in connection with Proposition 65. Topics will include:

  • New warning regulations that took effect August 30, 2018;
  • Updates since the new regulations took effect, including responses by regulators, responses of the regulated community, and actions by private “bounty hunters”;
  • How far up the supply chain Proposition 65 goes;
  • “Certification wars,” and how members of supply chain and sales channels are trying to shift responsibility;
  • Trends in claims―who has been getting sued and for what;
  • How likely your company is to be a target of a lawsuit or an indemnification claim; and
  • Best practices to (attempt to) avoid costly Proposition 65 actions.
