California Proposition 65
California’s Proposition 65 protects California consumers by requiring special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm where those products would expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels.
If a product description on this site directed you to this page, the following notice applies to that product:
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
In addition, California may require one or more of the following specific warnings for certain categories of products:
WARNING: Products with exposed solder may contain lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm. Please wash hands after handling internal components and motherboards and avoid inhalation of fumes if heating the solder.
Electrical Cords; PVC-Coated Wires, Cords, Plugs, and Connectors; and Other PVC-Coated Products
WARNING: The plastic on this product contains lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
- Lead from lead-based paints,
- Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
- Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated limber.
Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: Use of this tableware will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
California Transparency in Supply Chain Act
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect in the State of California. This law was designed to increase the amount of information made available by manufacturers and retailers regarding their efforts (if any) to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking, thereby allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.
Verification of Supply Chains
Rosewill, Inc. (“Rosewill”) is dedicated to conducting business in a lawful and ethical manner. It is our expectation that our suppliers do the same.
Auditing of Supply Chains
Rosewill’s Vendor Code of Conduct explicitly entitles Rosewill to conduct unannounced [and independent] audits or investigations at any time in response to a possible violation by our direct suppliers of company standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains. Because Rosewill strives to partner with direct suppliers who are governed by strict employment laws, at this time, we have not determined a need for additional verification or independent audit.
Certification of Direct Suppliers
By signing or accepting our purchasing contract or purchase order, each of Rosewill’s direct suppliers certifies it conducts business pursuant to all applicable local and national laws and its failure to do so is considered a breach of the agreement.
Accountability Standards and Procedures
Every employee and contractor is required to abide by Rosewill’s Code of Business Conduct. All new employees receive the Code of Business Conduct in their new hire information and sign an acknowledgement stating they have read it. Failure of employees to abide by Rosewill’s Code of Business Conduct is taken seriously, and can result in corrective action up to and including termination of employment.
Rosewill provides training for associates and management who work with our supply chains on the issues of slavery and human trafficking.
