Techno-Aide California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 Statement of Compliance
California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly referred to as Proposition 65, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. This proposition protects the state of California's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about possible exposures to such chemicals.
California Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide appropriate warnings to Californians about any and all potential exposures to specific chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other potential reproductive harm. This regulation requires the labeling of all products that do or main contain chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
It is possible a company might not be required to put a label on parts/products. However, under California OSHA and Prop 65, organizations are still required to provide information about parts/products sold containing any Prop 65 substances that the end user or an employee could be exposed to under normal parts/products use, so that they can provide warnings to the end users or to their employees as needed.
Even if a company is not selling any parts/products directly to California, an organizations product might be sold or used, or at least parts of a product, to or in California and a company is therefore obligated to provide information to customers in the form of a Proposition 65 declaration.
Proposition 65 labeling and notification is not an admittance of liability or representative of known contaminants or chemicals within or related to sold products or goods. Proposition 65 compliance is required to provide certain products and goods within the state of California.
Effective August 30, 2018, Proposition 65 has updated labeling requirements for businesses to notify consumers with "clear and reasonable" warnings of potentially hazardous chemicals present in products. Warning labels are required on all products that contain chemicals found on the state's list of over 850 compounds and must specify that the product contains chemicals "known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm."
Warning requirements are dependent on the anticipated level of exposure to the Proposition 65 chemicals, which result from the foreseeable uses of a product. The warning requirements will only apply if the foreseeable and intended uses of a product containing these chemicals are likely to result in exposures that exceed the "significant risk" or "observable effect" levels. A determination of "significant risk" or "observable effect" can only be made with full knowledge of the end uses and applications of the products.
