California Proposition 65, also referred as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a regulation with the main purpose of addressing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals known by the state of California to potentially cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Prop 65 requires businesses to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning on consumer goods in order to alert the individual before an exposure can take place.

Many of GIGAVAC’s Power Products have undergone testing by outside independent testing laboratories such as Underwriters Laboratories. The status of GIGAVAC’s UL Certifications can be found at UL Online Certifications Directory.
