1-Bromopropane Listed Effective August 5, 2016, as Known to the State of California to Cause Cancer

Effective 5 August 2016, California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding 1-bromopropane (CAS No. 106-94-5) to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer for purposes of Proposition 65. The listing of 1-bromopropane is based on formal identification by the National Toxicology Program (NTP), an authoritative body, 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 1-bromopropane is included in the “Notice of Intent to List 1-bromopropane” posted on OEHHA’s website and published in the 10 July 2015 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2015, No. 28-Z). The publication of the notice initiated a public comment period that closed on 10 August 2015. OEHHA received one public comment on 1-bromopropane. The comment and OEHHA’s response are posted with the Notice of Intent to List. A complete, updated chemical list is published in this issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register and is available on the OEHHA website at http://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/proposition-65-list. In summary, 1-bromopropane is listed under Proposition 65 as known to the state to cause cancer, as follows: Chemical CAS No. Endpoint Listing Mechanism* 1-Bromopropane 106-94-5 Cancer AB (NTP) Further information is available on OEHHA’s website.
