The Service, if available in your geography, will allow you to include a Prop 65 warning on the hazardous materials manifest based on your entry of data and/or active ingredient selected. While Agrian uses commercially reasonable efforts and diligence to generate a Prop 65 warning that is “clear and reasonable” based on your data selection, the Service—to the extent applicable to your jurisdiction—may not include all the required information or may result in inaccurate data because the Service does not validate chemical listings, safe harbor levels, or exposure amounts.
