or PROp 65
We provide the following warning on our drums as a result of the California law:
"Warning: This instrument’s finish contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. These risks only exists when sanding or abrading the surface."
Our drums are produced with the intention of creating and playing music and therefore are not harmful.
WHAT IS PROPOSITION 65?
Proposition 65 is a Californian law officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. The mark and statement are indicated in accordance with the stipulations of the regulation requiring notification to residents of California to dangers of potential accidental or intentional exposure to chemical substances used in products.
The law applies to any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures products that may be sold in or brought in to California.
Proposition 65 requires warning labels on any products that contains or may contain any of 700-plus elements that the California Air Resources Board considers harmful. Many of the elements listed under Proposition 65 have been routinely used in everyday consumer items for years without documented harm.
The EXCLAMATION warning symbol marks and the warning statement (“WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm - www.P65Warnings.ca.gov”) which are indicated on our products, packages or on e-commerce internet website support the regulations of California (USA) Proposition 65.
WHY DOES SJC CUSTOM DRUMS PUT THIS LABEL ON THEIR PRODUCT?
There are penalties for not complying with Proposition 65
As a result of the expensive penalties and because there is no penalty for providing the warning, SJC Custom Drums and many other manufacturers have elected to provide a Proposition 65 notice in an abundance of caution in order to avoid the potential for liability.
WHY IS THE WARNING INCLUDED ON PRODUCTS THAT ARE SOLD OUTSIDE OF CALIFORNIA?
Due to not knowing in advance which products we sell will be delivered to residents of California due to the nature of dealer and e-commerce sales, all products sold give these warnings even when not sold to California to abide by the Prop 65 law.
For more information, please refer to the sites of California State.
