*ACGIH is the American Conference of Governmenal Industrial Hygienists.

"A1" designates a confirmed human carcinogen: a substance, or substances associated with industrial processes, recognized to have carcinogenic potential.

"A2" designates a suspected human carcinogen: a substance or substances associated with industrial processes, which are suspected of inducing cancer, based on either limited epidemiological evidence or demonstration of carcinogenesis in one or more animal species by appropriate methods.

Note:  Italicized entries (four of the listings) are not included in the current OSHA Select Carcinogen List (Appendix ).
