Please note the following additional information:
- TDCPP is established as a NSRL (non-significant risk level) at exposure levels of less than <5.4 micrograms per day over a 70 year period.
- The cancer risk associated with this level of exposure is the daily intake level for a chemical calculated to result in one excess case of cancer in an exposed population of 100,000, assuming lifetime exposure to the chemical at the level greater than 5.4 micrograms per day for TDCPP.
NSRL are promulgated as regulations in title 27 California code of regulations sections 25705, 25709 and 25805.
