The Auto Care Association and the California Automotive Wholesalers’ Association (CAWA) are partnering to provide a webinar on the updated regulations of California’s Proposition 65, set to take effect this August.
The webinar, “California’s Prop. 65: Technical and Legal Compliance Requirements You Need to Know,” will take place on May 22 from 1 – 2:30 p.m. EST.
On Aug. 31, updated regulations will go into effect, meaning more than 900 chemicals including ingredients or additives in a variety of household products, food, pesticides and others will be classified as caution-causing chemicals. The new protocols will require businesses to identify at least one listed chemical that could be encountered in their products.
In the hour-and-a-half webinar, attendees will learn:
- Why Prop. 65 matters to businesses in California
- Warning regulations and requirements for manufacturers, distributors, retailers, brick and mortar, internet and catalog establishments.
- The enforcement process and penalties.
The webinar will also include several Q&A breaks throughout the presentation, allowing attendees to get answers to questions specific to their businesses or industries.
The webinar will be presented by Kevin C. Mayer, partner, Crowell & Moring LLP and an accomplished trial attorney with experience advocating on behalf of clients in a wide variety of complex product liability, mass tort, California Proposition 65 and OSHA lawsuits. He counsels clients facing regulatory enforcement at both the state and federal level.
