Update on California Prop 65: Safe Harbor Limit Established





(Press Release)
The below is a statement from the Vision Council regarding California Prop 65.

On June 17, 2016, California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) published its Maximum Allowable Dose Level (MADL) for BpA. The MADL, also referred to as a “safe harbor,” becomes effective on October 1, 2016.

The safe harbor exempts products from the Proposition 65 warning requirements where exposure to BpA from those products is less than 3 micrograms per day. The safe harbor is limited to 3 micrograms per day based on dermal exposure, and does not cover other potential means of exposure such as ingestion or inhalation. Those interested in conducting dermal exposure testing to determine whether their products are in the safe harbor may contact The Vision Council for names of labs doing such testing.

For more information, please contact Rick Van Arnam, The Vision Council Regulatory Counsel, Jason McElvaney, Government & Regulatory Affairs Liaison, or Michael Vitale, Technical Director.
