The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) intends to list the chemical identified in the table below as known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.

Chemical CAS No. Reproductive
Methyl isopropyl ketone 563-80-4 Developmental toxicity ACGIH (2011)

OEHHA is providing an opportunity to comment as to whether the chemical identified above meets the requirements for listing as causing reproductive toxicity, specified in Health and Safety Code section 25249.8(a).  Because this is a ministerial listing, comments should be limited to the question whether the ACGIH has assigned a TLV based in whole or in part on an endpoint of reproductive toxicity.

All comments must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, January 30, 2012.
