Proposition 65 is a California law whose goal is to protect residents from chemicals that may cause cancer and birth defects. Within this law are labelling requirements for products sold in the State of California. In some cases, the law applies to the types of plastic pipe and fitting system products produced by PPI members and represented by PPI.
Proposition 65 does not impact the requirements for plastic pipe and fitting products sold outside California.
