nuicon Glyphosate: Prop 65 Warnings

WPHA has been contacted by CDPR regarding recent communications between itself and US-EPA. Apparently, US-EPA is being inundated by requests from multiple registrants with requests for label changes to comply with what they believe are new Proposition 65 requirements for glyphosate. This rush for label amendments was spawned by an Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) speaker at a recent CSPA conference that either miss-stated, or stated in a manner that audience members interpreted to mean, that all glyphosate products must have Prop 65 warnings on their labels for next year.

We have contacted both the Department of Pesticide Regulations (DPR) and the OEHHA for clarification. DPR has indicated that they have made no changes in their policies regarding Prop 65 and OEHHA also indicated that glyphosate has not been singled out for any extraordinary warning requirement. It is up to the individual registrants and related businesses to determine how they comply with Prop 65 requirements. Changes to all glyphosate product labeling have not been mandated by OEHHA. Any warnings related to glyphosate that may be required will continue to be consistent to other pesticide products that have been identified by OEHHA as requiring a Prop 65 warning.

WPHA has prepared a guidance document that can provide more information on Prop 65 “safe harbor” warnings and glyphosate. To view the WPHA guidance document that provides more details regarding this issue click here, or contact Dave Lawson at davel@healthyplants.org. .
