List of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer: N,N-Dimethylformamide, 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole, and Tetrabromobisphenol A



Effective October 27, 2017, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding N,N-dimethylformamide, 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, and tetrabromobisphenol A to the list of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer for purposes of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). 

The basis for the listing of N,N-dimethylformamide, 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, and tetrabromobisphenol A was described in a public notice published in the June 30, 2017, issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2017, No. 26-Z).  The title of the notice was “Notice of Intent to List Chemicals by the Labor Code Mechanism: N,N-dimethylformamide, 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, and tetrabromobisphenol A.”  The publication of the notice initiated a 30-day public comment period.  We received three sets of comments on N,N-dimethylformamide, 2-mercaptobenzothiazole, and tetrabromobisphenol A.  The comments relevant to these three chemicals and OEHHA’s responses are posted with the Notice of Intent to List.
