OEHHA Staff Transparencies from Meeting: Carcinogen Identification Committee Held on October 7, 1999

A meeting of the Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) was held on October 7, 1999, at the Elihu Harris State Office Building in Oakland, California. Below are the transparencies of presentations made by staff of California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). The segments of the agenda covered with this material include the "Consideration of Chemicals Known to Cause Cancer", "Consideration of Chemicals, Listed Via the Authoritative Bodies Mechanism, For Removal From the List", and "CIC’s Proposal to Give Chemicals a Lower Priority For Committee Evaluation If They Are Prescription Drugs." The CIC identified bis(2-chloro-1-methylethyl)ether (technical grade), 1 -chloro-4-nitrobenzene, and estragole for listing as known to the state to cause cancer. The CIC also determined that allyl chloride, chlorodibromomethane, p-toluidine, and zineb should be removed from the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer. The CIC discussed the prescription drug proposal, but no consensus was reached.
