California Proposition 65
Attention California Residents:
California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers too special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These warnings are for products that expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. We care about our customers' safety and hope that the information below helps with your buying decisions.
The general Proposition 65 notice is as follows:
WARNING: All our products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm
This regulation is being considered by additional states and should be monitored closely as any business not compliant with Proposition 65 can receive large fines and risks lawsuits. If your company uses Flexa marine vinyl products and resells it in the state of California, we recommend that you take steps to confirm whether the warning requirements of California’s “Prop 65” are applicable to the products in question and whether your company is complying with those warning requirements for the chemicals contained within these products.
IMPORTANT: Businesses could receive a significant fine or face lawsuits if there is no warning where specific chemicals are sent in their products. The updated list currently populated with about 900 chemicals can be downloaded using this link: https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/.
It is important that every businesses familiarize themselves with Proposition 65. A warning label is only the first recommended defensive strategy and may not be enough to protect your organization from a violation notice and/or fine. It’s strongly recommended that your firm consult with a legal professional for guidance.
