From: OEHHA

Effective October 28, 2011, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) (CAS No. 13674-87-8) to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

Tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) was considered by the Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) in its official capacity as the “state’s qualified experts” at a public meeting held on October 12, 2011.  The CIC determined that tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) was clearly shown, through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles, to cause cancer.

A revised Propsition 65 list in available on the OEHHA website.

Testimonial

We're often asked by our clients to meet next-to-impossible deadlines, which means that we're often forced to ask our vendors for the impossible. Working with Nexreg makes my job easier. They are experts at what they do, they pay attention to detail, and they make suggestions and offer advice – which makes us look like the experts. For regulatory compliance and translations, Nexreg ranks as one of the strategic partners we can always count on.
