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

I just wanted to take a moment to say how we value the compliance service we have received from Nexreg. In the past two years our company has been faced with many challenges related to the sales of hazardous products in the US and Canada and Nexreg has been an excellent resource to help us ensure compliance to the ever changing regulatory environment.
