    Wait a New York Minute – Is California’s Prop 65 Chemical Warning Statute Making its Way out East?

    Earlier this year, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a proposal to add stringent labeling requirements for certain products sold in New York through the “Consumer Right to Know Act” (the “Proposed Act”). While the Governor’s Office has not yet released any formal guidance on the Proposed Act, the Office’s website states that agencies will be directed to “assess the feasibility of on-package labeling,” “establish labeling requirements for designated products,” and “develop a list of more than 1,000 carcinogens and other chemicals that will trigger labeling” requirements.

    The Proposed Act would also extend to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation’s (“NYDEC”) disclosure regulations regarding household cleaning products (see 6 N.Y.C.R.R. Part 659) to all cleaning products sold in the state and give the New York Department of Health similar regulating authority over personal care products. Broadly speaking, these regulations require manufacturers to make certain product ingredient information available on their websites and on a publicly accessible database.
