Norton Rose Fulbright: WARNING! This Post Contains Information on DINP and Proposition 65 in the State of California That May Help You Avoid a Lawsuit

By Will Troutman (US)

On December 20, 2013, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment added the phthalate DINP to the California Proposition 65 chemical list. Under Proposition 65, products containing newly listed chemicals require a warning starting 12 months after the listing. For DINP, this is December 20, 2014.

Given recent experience with other newly listed chemicals, such as cocamide DEA, we expect private Proposition 65 plaintiffs will be taking advantage of holiday sales to shop for products likely to contain DINP.

DINP is used as a PVC plasticizer. DINP is found in a variety of consumer products containing soft plastic or vinyl, including toys, fashion accessories, apparel, hardware products, and home goods. DINP is widely understood to have replaced other phthalates, such as DEHP, DBP, and BBP.
