Apr. 25 – Prop 65: Reproductive Toxicity: di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP)

Another recent release by the OEHHA:

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) of the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP) (CAS No. 68515-49-1 and 26761-40-0) 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 (Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., commonly known as Proposition 65). The listing of di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP) is effective April 20, 2007.

Di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP) (CAS No. 68515-49-1 and 26761-40-0) is being listed as a chemical known to the State of California to cause developmental toxicity. The listing of this chemical is based on formal identification by an authoritative body, in this case, the National Toxicology Program, in final reports of the National Toxicology Program’s Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction (“NTP-CERHR”) which conclude that the chemical causes developmental toxicity. The criteria used by OEHHA for the listing of chemicals under the “authoritative bodies” mechanism can be found in Title 22, Cal. Code of Regs., section 12306.
