Officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Proposition 65 was initially enacted to protect the states drinking water from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Today Prop 65 regulates a growing list of almost 1,000 different chemicals. On August 31, 2016, the State of California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) adopted certain amendments to Article 6, Clear and Reasonable Warnings for California Proposition 65 which became effective on August 30, 2018.
