The Office of Environmental
Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) of the California Environmental
Protection Agency is adding one chemical, pravastatin sodium,
to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or
reproductive toxicity for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water
and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). The listing
of this chemical is effective March 3, 2000.
is listed as a chemical known to the State to cause developmental
toxicity, based on a formal requirement by a state or federal
agency that the chemical be identified or labeled as causing cancer
or reproductive toxicity pursuant to an administrative listing
mechanism provided under the Act. Regulations governing the listing
of chemicals under the "formally required to be labeled or
identified" mechanism are published in Title 22, California
Code of Regulations, Section 12902.
The reader is directed
to the Notice of Intent to List Chemicals published in the October
29, 1999 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register
(Register 99, No. 44-Z) for the supporting documentation which
OEHHA relied upon in making its determination that the criteria
for administrative listing had been satisfied. A complete, updated
chemical list is published elsewhere in this issue of the California
Regulatory Notice Register.

listed under Proposition 65 as known to cause reproductive toxicity
