Effective August 14, 2015, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding teriparatide (CAS No. 52232-67-4) to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer for purposes of Proposition 65[1].  

The listing of teriparatide is based on a formal requirement by a state or federal agency that the chemical be identified or labeled as causing cancer[2] as provided under  Proposition 65.  Teriparatide has been identified or labeled to communicate a risk of cancer in accordance with formal requirements by the US Food and Drug Administration.  Regulations governing the listing of chemicals under the “formally required to be labeled or identified” mechanism are published in Title 27, California Code of Regulations, section 25902.

The documentation supporting OEHHA’s determination that the criteria for administrative listing have been satisfied for teriparatide is included in the Notice of Intent to List A Chemical by the “Formally Required to Be Labeled or Identified” Mechanism: Teriparatide, published in the June 19, 2015 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2015, No. 25-Z).  No public comments were received.

A complete, updated chemical list is published in this issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register and is available on the OEHHA website.
