Follow this link to download the May 3, 2011 Proposition 65 list that includes androstenedione, dibromoacetonitrile, hexachlorobutadiene, and malonaldehyde, sodium salt.

If you would like to sort the list by CAS number or date, please download the list as an Excel document. You can then sort the list by date, CAS number, or chemical name using MS Excel. The Excel document also includes the listing mechanism for each chemical listing and the safe harbor level, if one has been adopted. A hyperlink is provided for those chemicals for which the basis for listing documentation is available electronically. A hyperlink is provided for those safe harbor levels for which the risk assessment documentation is available electronically.

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) within the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding four chemicals -- androstenedione (CAS No. 63-05-8), dibromoacetonitrile (CAS No. 3252-43-5), hexachlorobutadiene (CAS No. 87-68-3), and malonaldehyde, sodium salt (CAS No. 24382-04-5) -- 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 ).  The listing of the four chemicals is effective May 3, 2011. 

The listings of androstenedione, dibromoacetonitrile, and malonaldehyde, sodium salt are based on formal identifications by an authoritative body , the National Toxicology Program (NTP), that the chemicals cause cancer.  The listing of hexachlorobutadiene is based on a formal identification by an authoritative body, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), 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 27, Cal. Code of Regs., section 25306. 

The documentation supporting OEHHA’s determination that the criteria for administrative listing have been satisfied for these chemicals is included in the Notice of Intent to List:  Androstenedione, Dibromoacetonitrile, Hexachlorobutadiene, and Malonaldehyde, sodium salt, published in the March 4, 2011 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2011, No. 9‑Z). 

A complete, updated Proposition 65 list is published elsewhere in this issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register and is available on the OEHHA website at http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html.
