is California Proposition 65?
Also known as the Safe Drinking Water
and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Proposition
65 is a law that requires warning to consumers if a product
exposes consumers to a wide variety of chemicals known
by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects
and/or other reproductive harm. Proposition 65 applies
only in California.
What does the Proposition 65 Warning "This
product contains chemicals known to the State of California
to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive
A Proposition 65 warning means that the
business issuing the warning knows that one or more listed
chemicals is merely present in its product. A warning
must be given unless a business demonstrates that the
exposure it causes poses "no significant risk."
California Proposition 65
Proposition 65 warning means one of two things: (1) the
company evaluated the exposure and has concluded that
product exceeds the "no significant risk level";
or (2) the company has chosen to provide a warning simply
based on its knowledge about the presence of a listed
chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
The California regulation does not address safe levels.
Even trace amounts of the chemicals included on the Proposition
65's list of chemicals known to the State of California
to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity must be noted
with the " Safe Harbor" wording. All Xmultiple
products have chemical exposure which is below the safety
concerns of RoHS and REACH compliant devices. All Xmultiple
products have RoHS and REACH certification.
