The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) of the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding a chemical to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 651). The chemical is environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is listed effective June 9, 2006.
Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) was considered by the “state’s qualified experts” (the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant (DART) Identification Committee of the OEHHA Science Advisory Board2) at a public meeting held on May 24, 2006. The DART Identification Committee determined that environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) was clearly shown, through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles, to cause developmental toxicity. Regulations governing the criteria for listing of chemicals by the “state’s qualified experts” (DART Identification Committee) mechanism are set out in Title 22, California Code of Regulations, section 12305(b)(1).
A complete, updated chemical list is published elsewhere in this issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register.
In summary, the following chemical is being listed under Proposition 65 as known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity:
|Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS)
1Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq.
2Health and Safety Code section 25249.8(b) and Title 22, Cal Code of Regs., section 12302 et seq.
3Listing mechanism: SQE – “state’s qualified experts” mechanism (22 CCR section 12305(b)(1)).
