The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), the agency responsible for maintaining the list of chemicals subject to California’s Proposition 65, recently announced that 39 additional chemicals are being evaluated by the State’s Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC).
There are already more than 850 chemicals listed as chemicals known to cause cancer, or birth defects, or other reproductive harm that are subject to Proposition 65, California’s “Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.”
The 39 chemicals noted in OEHHA’s recent announcement are not currently listed as carcinogens on the Proposition 65 list of chemicals. The CIC’s evaluation of these chemicals is one of the preliminary steps in the listing process. The meeting to consider these chemicals is scheduled for October 12 and 13 in Sacramento.
