Activar Construction Products Group Proposition 65 Statement
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also commonly known as Proposition 65 (Prop 65), was approved to protect California citizens from exposure to toxic chemicals by prohibiting businesses from discharging listed chemicals into drinking water sources. Prop 65 also requires businesses to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning before exposing anyone in California to a listed chemical (www.oehha.ca.gov/chemicals) more than the allowable level for that substance. New, stricter warning labeling regulations from California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment began on August 30, 2018.
We at Activar Construction Products Group (ACPG) are committed to providing safe and compliant products to our customers. As of August 30, 2018 we will label products in compliance with the new warning regulations. We are also working with our product suppliers to ensure Prop 65 compliance. Below is an example of the label that is placed on ACPG products and/or packaging in order to comply with Prop 65.
A Prop 65 warning label does not necessarily mean that the product is in violation of any product safety regulation, nor that it will eventually cause cancer or reproductive harm. Our products may have traces of listed chemicals, since they are found in many common materials such as steel, used in many of our commercial construction products. At this time, ACPG will include this warning label on our products to ensure compliance with Prop 65, regardless of destination.
