CA Prop 65 Database
California Prop 65 Settlement Database Courtesy of QIMA, a PPAI Trusted Affinity Partner
Available only to PPAI Members.
The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, often referred to as Cal Prop 65, is a California law intended to protect the State’s residents and drinking water sources from toxic chemicals and to inform its citizens about exposure to them. The list of chemicals regulated under Prop 65 is regularly updated, and currently includes over 950 chemicals.
Companies continue to be challenged by this law given the recent changes in the labeling requirements, presence of Prop 65 listed chemicals in consumer products, and resulting litigation. To help PPAI members take a proactive approach to compliance and avoid costly penalties, AI maintains a searchable database of relevant settlements, which includes detailed information about the targeted products, restricted substances, and the required test limits.
