California Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted 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. Further regulations are in effect as of August 30, 2018.

Whilst Diodes does not sell directly to consumers, our products will be present in some consumer products. As a component manufacturer, Diodes has concluded that most of its products contain at least one substance included in the Proposition 65 List, which the Act defines as “chemicals known to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Under normal operation, Diodes products should not result in any exposure.

For products sold into California, the following label, or smiliar, will be affixed on the product packaging:


WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead and lead compounds, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.

Diodes regularly reviews the Proposition 65 list and reserves the right to amend this declaration as necessary.
