Prop 65 and the Performance Plastics Industry
Presented by Carol Brophy
Thursday, October 4, 2018 (10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.)
Proposition 65 is a state-level law, so it can’t have that much impact on you, right? Wrong! If you are doing business in the State of California, you must be in compliance with this law or face stiff penalties. Worse yet, there’s a very low bar for so-called “bounty hunters” to purchase material, get it tested and bring charges against the companies that didn’t have the proper product labeling. In this valuable session, you’ll hear from Prop 65 expert Attorney Carol Brophy.
In this session you’ll learn:
