Why Should Attend
This webinar will provide you with a basic understanding of California Proposition 65. This proposition has been changed and modified several times since its original implementation in 1987. Today the chemical list has grown to include approximately 800 compounds for every use that could be imaged. The breath of this chemical list and the need to determine Maximum Daily Exposure Levels makes it very complicated. It is highly unlikely that your product does not contain at least one of the listed chemicals and is not get shipped into California. Therefore, California Proposition 65 should be important to all USA Product Manufactures.
