California Proposition 65 Compliance

What is Proposition 65?

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65 (“Prop 65”), is a California law that prohibits businesses from knowingly exposing individuals to chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm without providing a clear and reasonable warning.

Proposition 65 mandates California to publish and annually maintain a log of chemicals known to be carcinogenic, cause birth defects, or lead to other reproductive harm. Currently, this list includes over 900 chemicals. Access the full Proposition 65 Chemical List here.

Many of the chemicals listed can be found in various product types, including but not limited to clothing and accessories, dishware, food and beverages, electronics and electrical equipment, automobiles, furniture, and cosmetics and personal care products.

The presence of such chemicals in a product does not necessarily mean that the product is unsafe when used as intended. The warnings are intended to inform consumers about potential exposure to these chemicals and allow them to make informed decisions about their purchases.

Total Phase Prop 65 Compliance Statement

Total Phase certifies, to the best of our knowledge, that under normal product usage, all our products are in compliance with Proposition 65 regulations. While certain chemicals listed on California's Proposition 65 Chemical List may be present in some of our products, their concentration levels do not surpass the Safe Harbor levels established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). This includes both the No Significant Risk Level (NSRL) for cancer-causing chemicals and the Maximum Allowable Dose Level (MADL) for chemicals causing reproductive toxicity.

Therefore, our products do not pose a significant risk of causing cancer or reproductive harm when used as intended. As a result, there is no requirement for a warning label indicating potential exposure to these chemicals.

Please note that using Total Phase product's outside of normal, intended and/or foreseeable usage, including but not limited to dismantling the product, can potentially increase exposure levels and pose health risks. We advise consumers to follow the instructions set by Total Phase to mitigate any potential hazards associated with improper use.
