Methanol, et. al., Being Considered for Possible Prop 65 Listing

Posted 06/28/07



The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65 or the Act) which is codified at Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., requires the Governor to publish, and update at least annually, a list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The Act describes the mechanisms for administratively listing chemicals as known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity (Health and Safety Code section 25249.8.)

One mechanism by which a chemical is listed is if a body considered to be authoritative by the state's qualified experts has formally identified it as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. For reproductive toxicity, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) solely as to transplacental carcinogenicity, the National Toxicology Program (NTP) solely as to final reports of the NTP's Center for Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have been identified as authoritative bodies for purposes of the Act. The criteria for listing chemicals through the "authoritative bodies" mechanism are set forth in Title 22, California Code of Regulations, Section 12306.
