Two new chemicals were added to the “Chemicals Under Review” list this past month.
No chemicals were added to the ITSL/IRSL database [ http://www.deq.state.mi.us/itslirsl/ ] this past month.
The 1,3-butadiene (CAS # 106-99-0) ITSL changed from 2 g/m3 (24-hour averaging time) to 33g/m3 (annual averaging time).
The propylene carbonate (CAS # 108-32-7) ITSL was changed from 714 g/m3 (24-hour averaging time) to 700 g/m3 (annual averaging time). This chemical will be posted for formal public comment when there are several more chemical screening levels and justifications available to post as a group.
For diethylene glycol (CAS # 111-46-6), the ITSL changed from 21,000 g/m3 (24-hour averaging time) to 1,600 g/m3 1,600 (annual averaging time).
The propylene (CAS # 115-07-1) ITSL was changed from 1,500 g/m3 (annual averaging time) to 8,600 g/m3 (8-hour averaging time) based on a re-evaluation resulting in a change in the key study and critical effect.
The isobutene (CAS # 115-11-7) ITSL was changed from 21 g/m3 (annual averaging time) to 110,000 g/m3 (annual averaging time) due to an updated assessment and more recent toxicological studies.
For ethyl tertiary butyl ether (CAS # 637-92-3), the ITSL was changed from 373 g/m3 (annual averaging time) to 9,000 g/m3 (annual averaging time).
