Webinar: Preparing for Changes to California Prop 65

Join this member-only webinar to hear important updates to Prop 65 and how to get ready.
Audience: Member-only webinars are crafted and presented by AAFA to address member needs and provide exclusive insights around industry developments. AAFA member-only webinars are closed-press.


It can be very costly to be on the wrong side of California Proposition 65 (Prop 65). With updates to the law becoming effective later this summer, it is important to be sure that your company is ready. AAFA has the tools to help you navigate the new Prop 65 warning label options, including requirements for specific chemicals to be listed on your product. Join us as we review what you must know to prepare in the last few months before the updates to Prop 65 become effective.

Attendees of this webinar will learn:
  • Best practices for compliance with California Prop 65, 
  • Acceptable warning language for product labels,
  • Differences between the new Prop 65 short form and long form warnings, and
  • Risk management based approaches to selecting chemical names for long form warnings.
