The California "Proposition 65" law requires that California consumers receive warnings about consumer products that pose a threshold risk of exposure to certain specified chemicals. Beginning August 30, 2018, new Proposition 65 regulations take effect. These regulations establish new “safe harbor” warnings for consumer products sold in California. In response to these regulations, Ford has updated our consumer product labels and our E-Commerce and catalog sales websites for affected Ford and Motorcraft® products.
Below are links to spreadsheets showing Ford and Motorcraft® part numbers that will have new or carryover Proposition 65 warnings, organized by category. The listed parts will have Proposition 65 warnings appearing on the packaging or on a label affixed to the part. These lists are being made available to Ford Authorized Distributors and Ford Dealers for your information and use. Please note that parts cannot be ordered via this website.
The following Excel files can be downloaded by distributors and dealers for purposes of copying, pasting, and sorting information as desired. The contents of these files should not be altered after downloading. Ford is not responsible for any alterations made after downloading or any consequences resulting from such alterations.

Proposition 65 Certifications
Some distributors of Motorcraft® products have sent communications to Motorcraft/Ford requesting signed certifications or attestations with respect to compliance with Proposition 65. We are not in a position to execute every distributor-specific form, but this FCSD website is intended to transmit all of the information a distributor needs in order to 1) understand Motorcraft’s plans for Proposition 65 compliance, and 2) meet its own compliance obligations with respect to Motorcraft products. Please accept this notification, along with the information posted on the FCSD website identified above, as evidence of Motorcraft/Ford’s awareness of the Proposition 65 regulations and of our good-faith efforts to comply.
The above lists will be updated on a quarterly basis.
