Defining "Packaging" Under Proposition 65

Q: Under the requirements of Proposition 65, how do I determine which pieces of packaging are a part of my product and which are not? What packaging do I need to report on?

A: Unless the packaging is considered to be part of the product, such as a bottle of spray cleaner or a storage box for drill bits, it does not fall within the scope of Proposition 65. You do not have to report on substances used in any disposable product packaging not affixed to the product, including boxes, bags and clamshells.
