Garland Writing Instruments/Becker Manufacturing Company California Proposition 65 Compliance Statement


Garland Writing Instruments by Becker Manufacturing Company is compliant with current California Proposition 65 requirements.
All of the components of our products have been reviewed to determine if any of the materials are Prop 65 listed and if so, do they
meet the level that requires Prop 65 labeling. There are currently no products in our line that require Prop 65 warning labels. We
have SDS sheets on all of the raw materials that we purchase for production. We also have the material conformance/certification
statements on file for components that we purchase from outside vendors. Since over 95% of all components and materials used
in our products are sourced from the USA, we are confident that we are purchasing from reputable vendors that are also aware of
the CA Prop 65 labeling requirements. When new materials or vendors are sourced, we complete a thorough evaluation that will
ensure we remain compliant with the current Prop 65 product labeling requirements.

If you have specific questions regarding materials in our product line, please contact us.
