Today, the California OEHHA’s Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) reviewed 39 chemicals and classes of chemicals to determine their priority for potential listing. Of the 39 chemicals reviewed, the CIC put only 7 of them on the high priority list. This means they are the leading candidates for possible listing under Prop 65 within the next two years. Makers of those chemicals should expect to be subject to data call-ins in the next 3 to 6 months.

The seven selected chemicals and classes of chemicals are:

Acetaminophen

Butyl Benzyl Phlalate

CI Disperse Yellow 3

Coumarin

Dibenzantthracenes (and Dibenz (a,c) anthracene) 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and its salts and esters

N-Methyl-N-Nitroso-1-Alkylamines For agenda and comments on today’s meeting, see http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65/public_meetings/cic092311.html
