Section 25600 - General (California Code of Regulations)

§ 25600. General

(a) Article 6, Subarticles 1 and 2 apply when a clear and reasonable warning is required under Section 25249.6 of the Act. Subarticle 1 sets forth general provisions applicable throughout this article, including the allocation of responsibility among parties when a warning for a consumer product is required under the Act. Subarticle 2 provides "safe harbor" content and methods for providing a warning that have been determined "clear and reasonable" by the lead agency. Nothing in Article 6 shall be interpreted to determine whether a warning is required for a given exposure under Section 25249.6 of the Act.

(b) A person may provide a warning that complies with this article prior to August 30, 2018; such warning will be deemed to be clear and reasonable. A warning for a consumer product manufactured prior to August 30, 2018 is deemed to be clear and reasonable if it complies with the September 2008 revision of this article.

(c) If the lead agency has not adopted a specific product, chemical, or area exposure warning in Section 25607.1 et seq., an interested party may request that the lead agency adopt one pursuant to Government Code Sections 11340.6 and 11340.7. (Petition for Rulemaking), or may request guidance from the lead agency pursuant to Article 2, section 25203 (Interpretive Guideline Request) or Article 2, section 25204 (Safe Use Determination).

(d) A person is not required to provide separate warnings to each exposed individual.

(e) A person that is a party to a court-ordered settlement or final judgment establishing a warning method or content is deemed to be providing a "clear and reasonable" warning for that exposure for purposes of this article, if the warning complies with the order or judgment.

(f) Nothing in Subarticle 2 shall be construed to preclude a person from providing a warning using content or methods other than those specified in Subarticle 2 that nevertheless complies with Section 25249.6 of the Act.

(1. New subarticle 1 (sections 25600-25600.2) and new section filed 8-30-2016; operative 8-30-2018 pursuant to Government Code section 11343.4(b)(2) (Register 2016, No. 36). 2.
