Prop 65 Bisphenol-A (BPA) Analysis Service


What is Prop 65?

California Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is a consumer “right-to-know law”. Unless exempted, businesses may not expose individuals to a listed chemical without first giving a “clear and reasonable warning” (a Prop 65 warning), nor discharge a listed chemical into sources of drinking water. 

The Act lists more than 900 chemicals “known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive toxicity”. This list is updated at least annually. Prop 65 affects all consumer products sold or distributed in California, including textiles, footwear, hard goods, DIY products, toys, juvenile products, stationery, electrical/electronic items and more. 

Service Scope

In the US market, the FDA deauthorized the use of BPA for baby bottles, sipping cups, and epoxy resin packaging for infant formulas. Additionally, around 15 US states also have their own laws restricting the use of BPA, mainly in food contact materials intended for children.

Since Q4 of 2021, over 50 claims had been reported in California in relation to BPA content found in different products.

From now until November 30th, 2022, 2 (two) promotional offers are available to help stakeholders to determine whether Prop 65 listed chemicals are present in your Bottles, Kitchenware, and Food Containers and advise you on strategies for Prop 65 compliance.
