Proposition 65 Information
What 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.
Why do we place a Proposition 65 warning on our products?
The Prop 65 warning signifies one of two things:
WAC evaluated the product and determined that the product is above the “no significant risk level”
WAC has not evaluated the exposure level of the product, and the warning is provided based on the knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical.
Most WAC Lighting products are below the Prop 65 level of concern; however, out of general caution, WAC has chosen to place the Proposition 65 warning on all of our products.
