The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) within the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding imazalil (CAS No. 35554-44-0) 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 651).  The listing of imazalil is effective May 20, 2011. 

The listing of imazalil 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 253062

The documentation supporting OEHHA’s determination that the criteria for administrative listing have been satisfied for this chemical is included in the Notice of Intent to List Imazalil published in the December 3, 2010 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2010, No. 49‑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/proposition-65
