CONFLICT MATERIALS

UPDATED: May 1, 2018

This is to confirm that Cornell Dubilier capacitors DO NOT contain any materials that are purchased or manufactured by the Democratic Republic of Congo or any adjoining countries.

Cornell Dubilier's policy is to request "Conflict Free" Mineral declarations from its suppliers and to require our direct suppliers to source from smelters validated as DRC "Conflict Free" using the EICC-GeSI Conflict-Free Smelter (CFS) List. In the event that a mineral is not "Conflict Free", Cornell Dubilier will perform a corrective action by enforcing that the mineral be obtained from a "Conflict-Free" source.

Prop 65

UPDATED: August 30, 2018

Statement regarding Cornell Dubilier products in the light of California Proposition 65 obligations

To comply with Proposition 65, businesses are required to display a warning for listed chemicals unless exposure is low enough to pose “no significant risk” of cancer or is significantly below levels observed to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. By providing this warning, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about the products they purchase and use. A Proposition 65 warning does not necessarily mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. The State of California explained Proposition 65 as more of a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.

Cornell Dubilier has chosen to display the Proposition 65 warning on select products based on the possible presence of one or more listed chemicals, without evaluating the level of exposure. The level of exposure in our products may be negligible or well within the “no significant risk level”. The primary use of CDE products is inside other devices - with minimal exposure risk. Upon further testing, Cornell Dubilier reserves the right to discontinue displaying the warning on products where the level of exposure has been determined to be below the acceptable limit.
