The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA)
of the California Environmental Protection Agency is adding one
chemical to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause
cancer or reproductive toxicity for purposes of the Safe Drinking
Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). The
chemical is listed effective April 24, 2001.
Nimodipine is listed as a chemical known to the State to cause
developmental toxicity. The listing of nimodipine is based on
a formal requirement by a state or federal agency that the chemical
be identified or labeled as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity
pursuant to an administrative listing mechanism provided under
Proposition 65. Regulations governing the listing of chemicals
under the "formally required to be labeled or identified"
mechanism are published in Title 22, California Code of Regulations,
Section 12902 (22 CCR 12902).
The reader is directed to the Notice of Intent to List Chemicals
published in the February
23, 2001 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register
(Register 01, No. 8-Z) for the supporting documentation for the
chemical nimodipine, which OEHHA relied upon in making its determination
that the criteria for administrative listing had been satisfied.
A complete, updated chemical list is published elsewhere in this
issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register.
The chemical listed, effective April 24, 2001, and the mechanism
under which it is listed, are shown below:
