Candidate Chemical Footnotes


  1. The authoritative list on which this chemical appears may not identify a specific hazard trait as defined in Chapter 54 of Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations, but does indicate a general toxicity.

  2. DTSC was unable to identify hazard trait information from the authoritative list.

  3. Hazard trait information was gleaned through a review of readily available information published by the organizations that prepared the lists; this information was not specified on the lists themselves and may not or may not meet criteria in chapter 54 of Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations. DTSC may evaluate hazard trait data from other sources in the product prioritization process.

  4. In some cases, a group or class of chemicals is identified by the organizations that prepared some of an authoritative list as exhibiting – or having the potential to exhibit – a hazard trait. An individual chemical, including a metabolite, that is a member of such a group or class may or may not exhibit the indicated hazard trait.

  5. In some cases, the CDC 4th National Exposure Report tables lists the metabolites of a chemical, but not the chemical itself. Despite their omission from the tables, these parent chemicals are mentioned in the report. In these instances, DTSC has included the parent chemicals on the Informational Candidate Chemicals List.

  6. The rationale for these hazard traits is provided in the supporting documentation which can be found on the webpage associated with the Priority Products. These hazard traits may be updated after considering public comments during the rulemaking process or other comment opportunities.
