The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) within the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding benthiavalicarb-isopropyl (CAS No. 177406-68-7), mepanipyrim (CAS No. 110235-47-7), pirimicarb (CAS No. 23103-98-2) and resmethrin (CAS No. 10453-86-8) 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 (Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., commonly known as Proposition 65). The listing date of the four chemicals is effective July 1, 2008.
Benthiavalicarb-isopropyl (CAS No. 177406-68-7), mepanipyrim (CAS No. 110235-47-7), pirimicarb (CAS No. 23103-98-2) and resmethrin (CAS No. 10453-86-8) are being listed as chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer. The listing of the four chemicals is based on formal identification by an authoritative body (i.e., the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA)), that the chemicals cause 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.
