Practically speaking, this regulation applies to any company selling almost any product into California, whether through retail outlets or online marketplaces. The only relevant exceptions are companies with less than 10 employees; however, customers may still inquire into the Prop 65 compliance status of your product, due to liability concerns, and therefore, small businesses must essentially still investigate and understand their compliance. Products that are exempt include such things as pharmaceuticals.
And not just the entities introducing the final product must be aware of Prop 65 compliance, but the entire supply chain can be implicated. Therefore, even if your intermediate components, plastics, coatings, textiles, etc., end up in California, your company may still face questions about Prop 65.
