Prop 65 and Safety Standards


Pacesetter Awards strives to provide the promotional products industry with the highest quality award, plaques and gift products that are in compliance with applicable safety laws.


Pacesetter Awards products meet all applicable federal safety requirements as enforced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission. Pacesetter Awards products that are shipped to California are also subject to Proposition 65,, which is known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Proposition 65 required businesses to give clear and reasonable warning to consumers prior to completing the purchase regarding chemicals that are known to the state of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. California has adopted new rules under Proposition 65 and as of August 30, 2018 the regulation requires clear and reasonable warning labeling on products affected by Proposition 65.


Pacesetter Awards complies with the new regulations as of August 30, 2018 by providing the following short form warning label on product display pages requiring a Prop 65 warning -
