Over the past five years, an average of seven new chemicals have been added each year to California's ever-expanding Proposition 65 list. In order to remain compliant, protect consumer health, and avoid negative outcomes such as litigation, harm to brand reputation, and market disruptions, many businesses have developed proactive, forward-looking approaches to address the nearly 1,000 chemicals listed under Proposition 65. In addition to product stewardship efforts that target existing and newly listed chemicals, companies are looking upstream to prepare for chemicals that may be put on the Proposition 65 list in the future. In this session, attendees will 'speed date' chemicals that may be candidates for the Proposition 65 list. These chemicals were selected based on prioritization advice from the Proposition 65 Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee and recent evaluations by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the National Toxicology Program. Details will be presented regarding the basis for each chemical's potential listing, occurrence and uses, affected materials and product types, and other pertinent information.
