The Proposition 65 List – OEHHA (ca.gov)
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is a state agency that leads the California Environmental Protection Agency in protecting public health and environment. The OEHHA is committed to being a leader in public health and environmental protection by identifying potential cancerous, reproductive, and developmental risks without compromising innovation or economic growth.
Other Lists and Laws that Affect Chemical Exposure
The EPA maintains a list of all chemicals that are classified as hazardous substances. This list includes chemicals that are in, or may be released from, products and industrial processes.
California has a more comprehensive list than the EPA. The Proposition 65 list also covers substances not covered by the federal government. For example, coffee is on the Proposition 65 list but it is not listed by the EPA as a hazardous substance.
The FDA maintains a list of all drugs on the market that have safety warnings. This database is updated when new drugs are added to this list.
Below is a list of other lists and laws that may affect chemical exposure:
The Governor of California recently signed into law the third edition of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, also known as Proposition 65. This law requires the governor to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm that have been added to the Proposition 65 list.
