On October 26, 2018, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) listed "nickel (soluble compounds)" as a chemical known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity under Prop 65. The listing went into effect for soluble nickel compounds on October 26, 2019.
Companies need to be aware of the new Prop 65 requirements for certain products that expose consumers to soluble nickel compounds and should refer to the current Proposition 65 requirements to determine the appropriate format and content of any warnings necessary for their products.
