California adds nickel (soluble compounds) to list of chemicals known to cause reproductive toxicity

Effective October 26, 2018, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding  nickel (soluble compounds) to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. 

The listing of nickel (soluble compounds) means that warning requirements will apply in one year—i.e., as of 26 October 2019. 

The law firm of Bergeson & Campbell notes that “soluble” is not defined in the listing.
