Navigate California's stringent regulations

Exponent's teams are experienced with California's complex environmental regulations as well as regulators' expectations regarding rigorous scientific approaches to regulatory strategies for compliance.

How does Exponent help you understand and comply with California's public health and environmental regulations?

Exponent's California office, located in the heart of the government sector of downtown Sacramento, provides extensive support, helping you effectively understand and comply with California's complex regulations. We offer support for the registration, permit, and/or license requirements for products such as pesticides, health products, consumer products, and fertilizer materials. Our expertise includes support for new and unique ingredient disclosure laws, Proposition 65 testing and compliance, and standards advisory for foods, electronics, consumer, industrial, and agricultural products.

As the largest economy in the United States, California is a crucial market — from consumer product to chemical manufacturers. The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal-EPA) is made up of many of the key regulatory agencies impacting chemicals and product compliance. Cal-EPA includes key regulatory agencies such as the Department of Pesticide Regulation, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (the Proposition 65 authority), the California Air Resources Board, the Department of Toxic Substance Control, the State Water Resources Control Board, and the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery. Sacramento is also the headquarters of the California Department of Public Health, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the California Natural Resources Agency, and the California Energy Commission. For many of the agencies, the policies designed and implemented in Sacramento ultimately impact regulations and product compliance in other states, at the federal level, and even foreign countries.
