Section 25601 - Safe Harbor Clear and Reasonable Warnings - Methods and Content (California Code of Regulations)

§ 25601. Safe Harbor Clear and Reasonable Warnings - Methods and Content

(a) A warning is "clear and reasonable" within the meaning of Section 25249.6 of the Act if the warning complies with all applicable requirements of this article.

(b) Except as provided in Section 25603(c), a warning meets the requirements of this subarticle if the name of one or more of the listed chemicals in the consumer product or affected area for which the warning is being provided is included in the text of the warning. Where a warning is being provided for more than one endpoint (cancer and reproductive toxicity) the warning must include the name of one or more chemicals for each endpoint, unless the named chemical is listed as known to cause both cancer and reproductive toxicity and has been so identified in the warning.

(c) Consumer product exposure warnings must be prominently displayed on a label, labeling, or sign, and must be displayed with such conspicuousness as compared with other words, statements, designs or devices on the label, labeling, or sign, as to render the warning likely to be seen, read, and understood by an ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase or use.

(d) Environmental exposure warnings must be provided in a conspicuous manner and under such conditions as to make the warning likely to be seen, read, and understood by an ordinary individual in the course of normal daily activity.

(e) The warning content may contain information that is supplemental to the content required by this subarticle only to the extent that it identifies the source of the exposure or provides information on how to avoid or reduce exposure to the identified chemical or chemicals. Such supplemental information is not a substitute for the warning content required by this subarticle.
