Frequently Asked Questions

What is California Proposition 65?

California 65 is the State of California’s proposal to increase the concern about exposure to toxic chemicals, referred to as “California 65.” In November 1986, the State of California enacted the Drinking Water Safety and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, which was later codified in Chapters 25249.5-25249.13 of the California Health and Safety Code.

What are the requirements of California 65 and how should the product meet the requirements of California 65?

There are currently nearly a thousand substances on the “California 65” list. It is difficult for enterprises to fully control such a large amount of material. In addition, it is also difficult to update the controlled substances at least once a year.

We recommend that companies refer to the limit requirements of different substances in existing litigation and investigate the relevant situation of their own products. If the restricted substance in the product exceeds the limit value of the relevant litigation case, the enterprise should attach a warning label on the product.

When did the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) issue new regulations regarding warning labels? When does it take effect?

In August 2016, OEHHA passed amended regulations to provide “clear and reasonable” California 65 warnings. The new regulations have come into effect on August 30, 2018, and the old regulation warning provisions of September 2008 have been repealed, and companies need to use warnings that comply with the new regulations.

If the product has passed the phthalate test related to California Act 65, is it considered to meet the four additional phthalate requirements of RoHS?

Can’t think of it that way. These two regulations have differences in the scope of control, control limits, controlled substances and test methods, which need to be tested separately to

determine whether they meet the requirements.
