Proposition 65 Compliance

January 22, 2003

Over the last year, we have written to our clients regarding compliance with Proposition 65 matters that essentially require the dealership to post Proposition 65 warning signs in a clear and reasonable manner at various locations throughout the facility and on the vehicles being sold at the dealership.

I. Area Signs:

The area signs should be placed at locations where it can be read by customers, visitors, and employees prior to exposures. This would entail posting of the signs at locations as follows:

  • All entrances to your facility by customer, visitor’s and employees

There maybe other locations where signs maybe deemed necessary and the dealership should use prudence.

II. Bodyshop Signs:

  • Customer waiting lounge
  • Employee notice boards (where you currently post your labor law posters)
  • Cashiers Window
