The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has added C.I. Disperse Yellow 3 (CAS No. 2832-40-8) and 2,6-dimethyl-N-nitrosomorpholine (DMNM) (CAS No. 1456-28-6) to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer, as defined by Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986). The measure is effective as of February 8, 2013.

The Carcinogen Identification Committe (CIC), the "state's qualified experts", held a public meeting regarding the aforementioned chemicals on January 25, 2013, where they determined - through generally accepted scientific principles - that the listed chemicals cause cancer. The governing regulations for listing chemicals are set out in Title 27, California Code of Regulations, section 25305(a)(1).
