Proposition 65

Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, sets forward requirements that businesses are subject to when they, for example, sell merchandise in that state containing certain chemical substances.

California has published a list of more than 900 chemicals covered by Proposition 65, including lead, chromium, nickel, and other elements, regardless of whether such substances may be naturally occurring in the environment. Businesses are required to provide a ‘clear and reasonable’ warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing a person in California to a Proposition 65 listed chemical if the exposure to the average consumer of the product exceeds the threshold of ‘safe-harbor’ levels.

Products distributed by ICONIX may contain one or more chemicals listed in Proposition 65 which are known to the state of California to cause cancer and reproductive harm. ICONIX does not control or have knowledge of the end uses of the products distributed. ICONIX recommends that companies review the Proposition 65 regulations to determine the appropriate requirements for their specific application(s).
