OEHHA has scheduled a public hearing on March 11, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. PT as a result of a request from The Gorilla Glue Company. The hearing will be conducted remotely. Information concerning how to participate in the hearing will be posted on OEHHA’s website prior to next week’s meeting. More information about the public hearing and the proposed short-form warning amendments are provided here. As a result of the public hearing, OEHHA has extended the public comment period on this proposed rulemaking from March 8 to March 29.
On January 8, 2021, OEHHA proposed sweeping changes to the popular short-form Prop 65 warning. If adopted, companies will no longer be allowed to use the “just label everything” strategy as the short-form warning now will require identification of at least one product-specific Prop 65 chemical.
