OEHHA Adds Ethylene Glycol to Prop 65

July 27, 2015

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has announced the listing of ethylene glycol (ingested), CAS No. 107-21-1 as a chemical known to cause reproductive toxicity under Proposition 65.

The decision has been based on a final report by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) concluding that the chemical causes reproductive toxicity (developmental end-point) at high oral doses.

The criteria used by OEHHA for the listing of chemicals under the “authoritative bodies” mechanism used can be found in Title 27, Cal. Code of Regs., section 25306.

The listing is in effect since June 19, 2015.
