OEHHA Adds 3 Substances to the List of Chemicals Known to Cause Cancer

CA Prop 65 - Environmental Compliance

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has added three chemicals to the list of substances known to the state to cause cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

The addition of these three substances is effective October 27, 2017. Affected companies under Prop 65 are required to warn customers of potential exposure to substances which cause cancer or reproductive harm. All three of the newly added substances were determined by OEHHA to cause cancer.

The three substances are:

  1. N,N-Dimethylformamide (CAS No. 68-12-2)
  2. 2‑Mercaptobenzothiazole (CAS No. 149-30-4)
  3. Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) (CAS No. 79-94-7)

OEHHA’s news release on these additions can be found online here. The last prior update to CA Prop 65 was in January 2017.
