2018 brings new rules and regulations for product manufacturers.Changes to state, national, and international laws are causing headaches for manufacturers across the globe that want to sell their products here and abroad.
In Part Two, in our series on Chemical Regulation Issues for Product Companies, we turn our attention from science to the law. From lead and cadmium to phthalates and talc, the issue of trace chemicals and potentially harmful exposure from such chemicals in consumer products has been receiving more and more attention from federal and state regulators, as well as from media and consumers.
As manufacturers, retailers and distributors have mobilized to meet federal and state requirements, they now find themselves dealing with numerous other issues. For example, dramatic changes to California’s Prop 65 warning regulations will take effect on August 30, 2018. The new regulations significantly alter the safe harbor rules for providing Prop 65 warnings. If you are a company that sells product in California, you will need to prepare now before the law goes into effect.
