California Prop 65 Declaration
August 30, 2018
Policy and Declaration of Compliance with California Proposition 65
DynaQuip Controls strives to provide products that meet or exceed government standards. We regularly review our materials, suppliers, and processes to ensure compliance with all applicable health standards.
According to California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA): The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. The current list contains over 900 chemicals including naturally occurring substances and other chemicals used in the manufacturing and production of products.
According to California Prop 65, it is the duty of DynaQuip Controls to advise its customers of potential chemicals from the 900+ listed by the state of California. We do this with Prop 65 compliant warning labels. Our warnings, where applicable, are clearly labeled on the product or the packaging of the product.
Prop 65 applies to any company doing business in the state of California. Our products are sold and distributed through several channels into California. To ensure products entering California carry the right labeling, DynaQuip Controls provides the warning on all affected products, regardless of commercial destination in the United States.
Warning labels for Prop 65 do not mean our products will cause cancer or reproductive harm, nor that they are in violation of any safety standard or regulation. These are simply public “Right to Know” statements that the product contains or may contain a chemical from the list and that individuals may or may not be exposed to the chemical. Our products may have traces of chemicals from the list that are a constituent element in materials or manufacturing methods used. For example, Cumene 998-82-8, is used in plastics and adhesives (such as some Loctite® compounds) the presence of this chemical would trigger a warning on the larger product.
We apologize for any concerns this may cause individuals outside of the State of California, who may not be familiar with Prop 65. For more information on Prop 65, please visit https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/
