California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has approved an amendment to its Prop 65 warnings on rental car vehicles including passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, commercial trucks, and cargo vans.
Scheduled to take effect October 1, 2019, the amendment will allow companies to post their Prop 65 warnings in less conspicuous areas. The amendment is in response to concerns that the warnings were too visible on rental cars, making them prone to break-ins.
Approved methods for posting the Prop 65 warning will include: on the rental agreement or ticket jacket, on a hang tag placed on the rearview mirror, on a sign posted at the rental counter, in an electronic contract, or in a confirmation email.
Rental car businesses should review their policies for Prop 65 compliance. Questions? Give our attorneys a call for a consultation at (951) 300-2690.
