California Adds Methanol to Prop 65 List

Effective March 16, 2012, California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added methanol (CAS No. 67-56-1) to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity for purposes of Proposition 65. The listing of methanol is based on formal identification by the National Toxicology Program (NTP), in a report by the NTP Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction, that methanol causes reproductive toxicity (developmental endpoint). The criteria used by OEHHA for the listing of chemicals under the authoritative bodies mechanism can be found in Title 27, Cal. Code of Regs., section 25306.
