Norton Rose Fulbright: The Mysterious World of California’s Proposition 65: A Miniseries

By Will Troutman (US) and Stephanie Stroup (US)

If you are reading this blog, at some point, you have probably encountered what many consider to be the most vexing of all of California’s laws: Proposition 65.

While Proposition 65 appears relatively simple and straightforward―“No person in the course of doing business shall knowingly and intentionally expose any individual to a chemical known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without first giving clear and reasonable warning to such individual…”―a review of the current state of the law and its regulations reveals a complex and confusing web of real and “shadow” requirements that usually only become clear when a company first gets a Proposition 65 notice or a letter from a downstream customer demanding defense and indemnity.

Here at the Consumer Products Law Blog, over the next several months, we are going to do our best to pull the curtain back on Proposition 65 through a weekly blog series designed to give you a general understanding of Prop 65 and its requirements, as well as providing practical insight that we hope will help you approach compliance or more fully understand potential litigation.
