California Proposition 65, also known as the 'Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986', details a list of approximately 900 chemicals and substances that are known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Under California Proposition 65, businesses are required to provide a warning to California consumers when selling a product that contains any of the listed substances at levels that exceed the safe harbor limits established by the State of California.
Effective with products manufactured after August 30, 2018 – increased and more detailed warning requirements associated with California Proposition 65 take effect.
While S&S Activewear, LLC is neither the manufacturer nor the direct importer of any of the products that we distribute, we have worked extensively with our vendors to identify any items in our assortment that require warnings when sold in the State of California. Through this process, we have confirmed that the vast majority of apparel, headwear, and accessories in our assortment does not require a warning under CA Proposition 65. We have identified a limited number of styles – concentrated in bags and safety wear – which do require the warning.
A link to the complete list of styles and additional resources can be found below:
The State of California maintains a website specifically to address Proposition 65 and its associated warning requirements. A link is below for your further reference.
We hope this information is helpful to those of you doing business in California. If you have additional questions or need support, please contact your S&S sales or customer service representative.
