Acceptance of a Request for a Safe Use Determination for Styrene in Bathware Products

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is the lead agency for the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (commonly known as Proposition 65, codified at Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq.).  OEHHA has received a request for a Safe Use Determination (SUD) for styrene in Fiber Care Baths, Inc. bathware products, including tub showers, tubs, shower pans, shower stalls, walk-in baths, and handicapped access stalls, manufactured utilizing 1st and 2nd laminations systems and application of the LV-9800 acrylated gel-coat.  Specifically, this request is for a determination that exposures to styrene from these bathware products do not present significant cancer risks under Proposition 65, and therefore do not require a warning.  The request is made by Tech America Corp. on behalf of Fiber Care Baths, Inc. pursuant to Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations, section 25204(b)(3).
