Proposition 65 POLICY

Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act

The statements included herein are based on AMETEK IS understanding of the Prop 65 documentation and our best intention to comply with such regulations

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

Proposition 65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause Cancer or Birth Defects or other Reproductive Harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians about potential exposure to chemicals in the products they purchase for personal use or enjoyment of a consumer by providing a “clear and reasonable” warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical.

AMETEK IS BU is committed to Health, Safety and Environmental excellence. We conduct business responsibly and, in a manner designed to protect the health and safety of our employees, our customers, the public and the environment. However, some products AMETEK IS BU supplied may contain chemicals, such as lead, which has been identified by the state of California to cause cancer, birth defect or other reproductive harm.

Based upon AMETEK IS BU level of knowledge of our business operations and chemicals used, our products, in their finished form do not require California Proposition 65 warning label since our products are not intended/designed as “CONSUMER PRODUCT” which per Proposition 65 definition means any article, or component part thereof, including food, that is produced, distributed, or sold for personal use, consumption or enjoyment of a consumer. AMETEK IS BU clearly communicates the intended use of our product using the following statement on the packaging of our products: “FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY, NOT FOR INDIVIDUAL SALE OR FOR PERSONAL USE OR ENJOYMENT OF A CONSUMER”. In addition, this same statement is included in our website and product literature. AMETEK IS BU periodically reviews newly acquired or developed products to make sure the intention of our products remains for Industrial use only.
