Proposition 65

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted in the state of California 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.

Updates to Proposition 65 include expansive labeling requirements and occupational exposure. The increased scope of these requirement include labeling for Spare parts and includes some significant enforcement initiatives. These changes will be effective August 2018. All companies will need to comply to the change in order to avoid legal ramifications.

Common Data Exchange Platform

Today, our member companies and their supply chains are dealing individually with regulatory compliance. Because of this, compliance can be very complex and confusing as a supplier can receive multiple requests asking for the same information reported in many different formats.

Addressing this challenge requires a central location for the reporting, updating, and distributing of regulatory compliance information. Our Regulatory Compliance Steering Committee - Substances has evaluated many options and is pleased to recommend the HP CDX platform as the first solution that has met our rigorous requirements. CDX is operational today.

HP has developed the Compliance Data Exchange (CDX) service to collect material and substance data globally through supply chains in different industries to assist companies in complying with various reporting requirements.
