From the OEHHA:

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) within the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding dibromoacetic acid (CAS No. 631-64-1) 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 (Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., commonly known as Proposition 65). The listing of dibromoacetic acid is effective June 17, 2008.

Dibromoacetic acid (CAS No. 631-64-1) is being listed as a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer. The listing of this chemical is based on formal identification by an authoritative body (i.e., the National Toxicology Program (NTP)), that the chemical causes cancer. 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.

The reader is directed to the Notice of Intent to List Dibromoacetic acid (CAS No. 631-64-1) published in the April 18, 2008 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2008, No. 16 Z) for the documentation supporting OEHHA’s determination that the criteria for administrative listing have been satisfied for this chemical.
