Aug. 30, 2018: Replace three Prop. 65 signs with single sign

Replace three Prop. 65 signs with single sign

August 30, 2018 1091

Proposition 65 regulations were amended in 2016, requiring dental practices to replace multiple notices with one notice or provide the warning as part of the written informed consent. A dentist employing 10 or more employees and using one or more of the chemicals on the Proposition 65 list must provide a warning notice. CDA strongly encourages dental offices with fewer than 10 employees to post the sign or use the warning notice, because the definition of employee is broad and dentists should err on the side of caution. The new regulation is effective Aug. 30, 2018. However, dental practices may choose to comply with the new regulations now and they will be considered in compliance. The posting of the old Proposition 65 warning notices for restorative materials, nitrous oxide and bisphenol A is deemed compliant until the effective date of the new regulation. CDA has developed a Proposition 65 resources (zip) that includes frequently asked questions and Prop. 65 notices in numerous languages.
