Under California’s Proposition 65 (Prop 65), the state has established a list of carcinogens and chemicals causing reproductive toxicity and requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to those chemicals. Prop 65 also prohibits state businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.

Prop 65 also establishes “safe harbor levels,” which include no significant risk levels (NSRLs) for carcinogens and MADLs for reproductive toxics. The OEHHA recently established an MADL for oral exposure to ethylene glycol equal to 8,700 micrograms per day. Therefore, any exposure level or discharges to drinking water sources below the newly established MADL are exempt from the requirements of Prop 65.

For more information, contact OEHHA’s Prop 65 program at P65.Questions@oehha.ca.gov or by phone at 916-445-6900.
