The regulation requires entities doing business in California to provide warnings to consumers about possible exposure to specific chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. The new requirements provide additional guidelines for how the chemical warnings should be delivered. Businesses should take necessary precautions to ensure that they are prepared for the regulation update.
