California Proposition 65 New Intention Substances

By: SiliconExpert on July 17th, 2019

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) plans to list the following chemicals known to the State as causing cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). This action is being proposed pursuant to the “Labor Code” listing mechanism.


Labor Code Mechanism:Health and Safety Code section 25249.8(a) incorporates California Labor Code section 6382(b)(1) into Proposition 65.  The law requires that certain substances identified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) be listed as known to cause cancer under Proposition 65.  Labor Code section 6382(b)(1) refers to substances identified as human or animal carcinogens by IARC.  OEHHA has adopted regulations concerning these listings in Title 27, Cal. Code of Regs., section 25904.  As the lead agency for the implementation of Proposition 65, OEHHA evaluates whether a chemical’s listing is required by Proposition 65.
